the last couple of years a few companies were showcasing different versions of hover board and now Lexus has created one that is pretty close to what is seen in the back to the future movies. It is pretty awesome, go check it out.

I thought the idea of a hover board was a joke.

I saw it on TV yesterday.  It looks neat.  Why didn't they have things like that when I was a kid??
Have a wonderful day!

My kids tell me I'm a dope for falling for those youtube videos about hover boards. I'm fairly gullible.  :dontknow:

So I guess I'll have to stay an unbeliever in the hover board world.  :-\

Like skateboards, hover boards might require the rider to push themselves with one foot.

They are pretty neat, aren't they?  I would imagine it takes a little time to get used to.  Look out for broken bones and butts, LOL.

With ONE DAY to spare!    ;)   Anybody care to wager on whether Marty McFly will show up any time tomorrow to try out a hover board?

Thanks for sharing that link.  I totally believe this is real science.  It's not like skateboards for street use at all, it requires a special track.  Super conductors are real.  It makes me think of bullet trains and magnetic propulsion.  Science fiction is science future.  Look at how many people walk around with communicators, tablets, memory sticks and memory cards, just like in Star Trek.  :glasses-nerdy:

Thanks but no thanks, I will keep my 2 feet on the ground. If I have to go some where, farther then I am walking then I will take the car. At least I know I won't fall and break a bone. I know it can happen walking or riding in the car but at least I would be safer.

Although Funny Or Die and Tony Hawk did create a hoax video about the "first hooverboard" that many fell for, there actually are now a few real hooverboard designs. Wired has an article about the three different hooverboards that have been invented to-date. One works much more like the hoover-boats or helicopters where the board has rotors that push air downwards to create lift, while the other two designs relies upon magnetism. It'll be interesting to see whether any of these will get developed further for a true consumer good.
