A Real McFly Hoverboard
Last week, I tweeted about a Gizmodo post about how hover boards are ruining Christmas. The equation often boils down to:
It seems that the hoverboards are the chic and en vogue way to “crash and burn”. If the exploding batteries don’t get you, your lack of balance may be all needed to lead you to your demise.
With that said, it might be well and good that the much more Marty McFly hoverboard in the video below is likely vaporware.
A Real Hoverboard?
The article I discovered this at states that due to many limitations, this particular device will likely end up as vaporware. However, it also mentions that Lexus has also created another impractical attempt. I still think it would be awesome if we could actually develope such a device. While it may be somewhat dangerous, it is the closest thing we would have to a flying carpet.
