Back to the Future...Again - An Actual Hoverboard

Of a sort, anyway. If you're a fan of Michael J. Fox (love that guy) and/or his Back to the Future movies. you'll remember that in Back to the Future II, Marty McFly traveled to the future (the year 2015). One of the technologies there was the Hoverboard. Here's a video with an actual Hoverboard.

Here are the details about how this Hoverboard was made.

It was based on a work by French artist Nils Guadagnin.

I always find it fun when "the future" as shown in books and movies actually approaches or passes. We get to compare what people dreamed and what actually came to pass. What fun!

It's like our evolving cell phones (Star Trek communicators) or GPS systems in our cars (Star Trek computers speaking like humans). These things were unheard of in the sixties.

I just hope I can still balance on a hoverboard by the time they become commonplace.
