Genuine Hoverboard Sets World Record

Recommended Posts

She-ra

For years we've been trawling the internet for the first working hoverboard that delivers on all our 'Back To The Future' dreams.

Well that search is now over, we've found it, and it just set a Guinness World Record.

Remainder of article here: http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2015/05/22/genuine-hoverboard-sets-a-guinness-world-record-for-furthest-distance-travelled_n_7419896.html?utm_hp_ref=weird-news&ir=Weird%20News

I love this. :lol:

How come they didn't have toys like this when I was young enough to be crazy enough to want to play with it?...

I don't understand; where is the power coming from ?

Probably from a scaled down version of the Flux Capacitor, I hear they can generate quite a few gigawatts.

Oooh... I could use this to replace bulbs on the bloody huge chandelier at work! Well, we'd get complaints about the racket it makes, but it would flaming beat having to climb the ladder!

I have to agree, at work it would be a wonder, but while laying on the beach listening to the waves, not so much. :hmm:

It's powered by the self-esteem of the user. And aliens.

The reason he's doing it over water is so he doesn't get as hurt when it crashes. This tech probably has a long time to go before it is safe for everyday use. Very cool though
