they finally invented it
Sign me up!
I'm calling bullshit.
We can never have nice things, we're in the darkest timeline.
I just want to see where they're going with all of this.
There are more then a few celebrities who have been involved with endorsing this on video now, that I can't just see it being done with. There has to be something more coming, and I hope its good
It's a prank that sprung from a Funny or Die video because we're nearly up to Back to the Future II's future segment which was set in 2015. There's no actual product coming.
You could make a hoverboard that runs on a superconducting track, but not one that flies wherever it wants, nor one that could support the weight of a human rider yet. You could make a hoverboard that has internal helicopter-like rotors, but again, not one capable of supporting a human rider. For that, you'd have to increase the size to about twice that of a large motorcycle or half the size of a small car (a company has built one in a quest to make a Star Wars-like speeder bike, though it looks and behaves nothing like it).
That's quite clever. Nicely done
True..I just wish I could have one for real!
Well, you can... in your dreams!
Watch the back of their shirts or sweatshirts and how their shoulders change shapes.
I think we can be fairly sure that when or if a compact anti gravity technology arrives, the first thing we hear about it will not be an advert for a flying skateboard.
...still want me a pair of those shoes and the jacket...I vaguely recall a time when a version of the shoes were available...without the auto.-fit...
A year or 2 ago IIRC...
Limited edition, so pricey...
I believe Nike is making an actual pair of self-lacing/tying shoes next year.
And, yeah, of "hoverboard" technology like this ever were invented I doubt its first application would go to skateboards. Nor do I think it would look *exactly* like the technology from the movie.
Check the UPDATES located at the bottom of the article. Funny or Die has admitted it was a hoax.
Eh, instead of hoverboards we have this
Let's go waterboarding! Even American Presidents are into this stuff!
Those of us who know how the world and internet work already figured it was a hoax/joke.
Reading posts here on TrekBBS, many posters do NOT know "how the world and internet work".
