2014: The year of the hoverboard. Finally.

If you haven’t already seen it, that’s the promotional video for the single greatest piece of movie technology since the lightsaber. The hoverboard–the one thing that defines the Back to the Future franchise next to the DeLorean–is the creation of a company caled HUVr Corp who have have taken the technology of yesterday’s tomorrow, and brought it to us today!

Twenty-five years after realizing we needed to have these in our lives, the hoverboard is finally a reality. We just have to wait for it to hit the shelves, and we’ll all be ditching our cars and boring, wheeled skateboards for the far more awesome hovering variety.

In the video, you can watch Moby, Tony Hawk, a bunch of other US personalities, and Doc Brown/Christopher Lloyd himself explaining just how easy and amazing the technology is. If you don’t believe it (you should) hit the play button and prepare to be blown away.

See the technical specs of the board after the jump!







If you’re still reading this, and haven’t already figured it out, we have some magic beans we’d like to sell you. The hoverboard isn’t real, and this might be a campaign to push either a new game by Tony Hawk, a new BTTF movie, or more BTTF-related merch. I know. We want to believe it too.
