Come on, Mattel! It's 2015 in 3 days...

...where is my Hover Board?

Can you believe it? We took the long road, but we almost made it to the year Marty McFly skipped to from 30 years ago!

Re: Com on Mattel! It's 2015 in 3 days....

It's cool but people love to ignore the fact that it's not truly the hover board of Back to the Future. It requires a conductive - not magnetic, btw - substrate to work. In other words, it can only hover an inch or two above conductive material. For about 15 minutes between charges. It would not have worked for the hover board the film represents.

Myth Busted.

I'm waiting for the real thing.
