Back to the Future Hoverboard Lands on your Desk

by Shane McGlaun

My favorite ’80s movie franchise is easily Back to the Future. While the third film set in the old west was a bit crappy, the first two films are some of my all-time favorite movies. I wanted one of those hoverboards so badly growing up I could taste it.

When the rumor that they were “just about” to hit the toy store coming right on the heels of the film, I was ready to buy. I’m still mad that all these decades later I still don’t have a hoverboard, at least not one I can ride.

At least I can get this desktop version of the Back to the Future hoverboard for my desk. It uses a pyrolytic graphite board that hovers on a rare earth magnetic base. The board slides back and forth on the magnetic base and it even has glowing edges for the base. You can get one at ThinkGeek for $39.99(USD). Just don’t put it near your hard drive or credit cards.
