We’ve Made it to the Future! Huvr Boards Have Arrived

Do we have any Back to the Future fans?  Who am I kidding, we’re all fans.  If you saw the second one, then you’ll be excited to know that the hovercraft boards from that movie, have been made finally!  Flying cars are next!  It can hold up to 180 lbs, has an electromagnetic field for doing skateboard tricks (like on railings), and you can use your smartphone to control the board – like a remote.  Watch the video! 


If you haven't seen the movie - here's a video for reference...

Now here comes the bad news.  Apparently, this was all part of a very elaborate hoax.  That’s right, if you were planning on surfing the neighborhood in your new awesome hoverboard, using your phone as a remote – I’m sorry to have just shattered your dream.  There were a lot of indicators there to tell us this was a big joke.  The team that “built” the board, a group from MIT in the Physics Grad Program, posed in the stereotypical arms crossed nerdy scientists stance for a photo when the idea was released.  That should have been our fist tip off.    

So what’s the point of this expensive hoax?  Some say that a new Back to the Future is about to be released.  I guess we will just have to wait and see!  I’m still expecting my flying cars soon …
