The hoverboard is one of the geekiest movie devices of the last century. I think it makes for great sci-fi comedy. A lot of people think it would be great in reality.
Hendo has 1,993 backers pledging $352,154 or their $250,000 Kickstarter goal. With investors’ support, they plan to craft usable hoverboards for the public, and they are sharing their technology with other developers that back the campaign. They have 50 days to go, which they don’t need. ∞
