Well, another hoverboard is purported to be coming our way. Me, I’m skeptical. I still don’t think Back to the Future II is anywhere close.
After all, we’ve been burned on hoverboard scams before. Even if this isn’t a hoax, Hendo Hoverboard is only promising you a $10,000 hoverboard in a year that can float an inch off a conductive surface for seven minutes. That isn’t very long, or very high. It is very expensive and you’d have to only go on special surfaces. There isn’t any propulsion either, just the 1 inch levitation.
I’m not exactly enthused, particularly at that price.
Even if this is real, which I’m skeptical about to begin with, this is still a long, long way from the hoverboards of Back to the Future II. No special surfaces, more than 7 minutes float time, far above an inch over the ground, and propulsion. I’m just not biting.
