Somebody call Spider-Man, because I think we just spotted the Green Goblin! What you’re about to see is a jet-powered Flyboard Air being piloted at speeds up to 103.4 mph. This thing looks like a lot of fun.
Segway has a new personal transport vehicle that Paul Blart wouldn’t be able to use. The vehicle is called the Ninebot by Segway miniPro and it has a maximum weight capacity of 185 pounds. If you meet that weight capacity, it will haul you about 14 miles per charge at a max speed of 10 mph.
You know how it is. You sleep in too late, and then you don’t have time for breakfast before work. It happens to the best of us. The Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cruiser has you covered. Just add your milk and cereal to your hoverboard and get on your way.
One look at the image below and you should know that when I say hoverboard distance world record, I don’t mean those dumb “hoverboards” with two wheels that will burn your house down. I am talking about a real flying hoverboard that will get you into the air.
You know those newfangled hoverboards that are prone to explode and are really not that great anyway? Looks like people are just getting started making stupid accessories for them. Take, for example this hoverboard sitting attachment that lets you ride across the beach sitting on your lawn chair throne like redneck royalty.
“Hoverboards” are complete bullsh•t. They don’t hover at all, so stop lying to us and just call it an ass-busting sideways electric skateboard. That is a much more accurate name.
So far as I can tell everyone who steps on one of these ends up on their ass.
You don’t have to be from October 21, 2015 to build your own Back to the Future hoverboard you know. This video will show you how. It actually looks very simple and the board looks just like the one in the movie!
With 2015 halfway over, it seemed like we’d fail to meet Back to the Future‘s prophecy of a hoverboard. The hero of destiny, Mattel, has practically given up. And then Lexus brought this thing out.
Now for the bad news.
We want our hoverboards. We were promised hoverboards, and we don’t have them yet. I was starting to think that it might actually be easier to raise Nikolai Tesla from the dead, and pay him to do what today’s scientists can not.
We have less than a year to go before Back to the Future II’s hoverboard prediction is debunked. But thanks to virtual reality, we might be able to simulate the feeling of riding a hoverboard. Game developer Kieran Lord aka Cratesmith recently showed off an early build of his hoverboard simulator for the Oculus Rift.
There have been many attempts to recreate the design of the Hoverboards from Back to the Future II, but none of them have been functional. Now, there’s a project which just kicked off with hopes of creating an actual, working Hoverboard by the Summer of 2015 – the same time period that Marty visits in the movie.
A while back, there was an opportunity to purchase one of the original hoverboards from Back to the Future II, but that one sold for over $22,000 at auction. Here’s a chance for you to own your own, at a fraction of that price.
Apparently the hoverboard that I’ve always wanted has finally become reality. It was made by Nils Guadagnin for a Back to the Future exhibition.
As is obvious from the pics, this is a copy of the one Marty McFly rode in Back to the Future Part II.
