This Is Tony Hawk Finally Taking a Real Hoverboard for a Spin, and We Want Our Own Right Now Please
This is heavy.
Yes, it’s 100% real this time, despite Tony Hawk now being regarded as the boy who cried hoverboard. This one comes with the caveat that it must be used over special surfaces to function, but that’s a small footnote on the fact that we finally have a very real hoverboard just a few months before Back to the Future II‘s 2015 deadline. Success!
Now we’re going to cover all of our city streets, sidewalks, railings, and buildings in the non-ferromagnetic conductive materials needed to make the boards float, right? We have to be ready for these things, since the Kickstarter has already crushed its goal in no time ($450,000 on a $250,000 goal). It’s the only logical course of action.
As you can see, Hawk is very sorry for the crudity of the model in the hoax, and he seems to find the real hoverboard much more difficult to ride. So not quite this easy:
But we’ll get the hang of it. We promise. So can we have it now please?
- The actual hoverboard from Back to the Future II was auctioned off
- Funny or Die was behind the recent hoverboard hoax
- There’s also an electric skateboard designed to look like the hoverboard
