It's About Freakin' Time: A Real Hoverboard!

For anyone who's seen Back to the Future 2, the most lusted after future gadget from childhood has always been the illusive hoverboard. Much like the "alien technology" refrain, a common hoverboard conspiracy from my youth was "The government already has them, but they won't give them to the public!" And who could argue against it really - they've never surfaced in real life. Until now.

Using "simple electromagnetism" this board is able to float a few inches off the ground and uses a laser-guided stabilization system to keep the board level. It's not quite ready for prime-time though - you can't actually stand on it - but this is the product of one artist and some brilliant engineering. If we can get some real heavies behind the cause, we'll be floatin' around town in no time.
