This is not a hoax (unlike earlier on this year with Tony Hawk) The World’s first real Hoverboard has been created and it works.
Los Gatos startup Hendo has taken it upon themselves to introduce the world to its first real hoverboard. There are already a few prototypes that have already been produced and as shown the video shows, is able to float about one inch off the ground. One of my childhood wishes as almost within my grasp!!.
The science behind the futuristic device lies in its four disc-shaped hover engines.
They create a special magnetic field which literally pushes against itself, generating the lift which levitates the Hendo Hoverboard off the ground.
Hendo’s floating machine is primarily intended to be self-propelled, although the actions which stabilize it can also be used to drive it forward by altering the projected force on the surface below.
The video below explains more so watch and enjoy.
