In the 1980s, the future was all about hoverboards (thanks in great part to Back to the Future II) and yet 30 years later, they’re still practically non-existent. However, Greg and Jill Henderson of Hendo Hover are looking to change that with HENDO—a real hoverboard that uses magnetic fields to levitate off the ground. They have a functioning prototype that can hover one inch above special surfaces that are non-ferromagnetic conductors.
Hendo Hover is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the hoverboard’s production. Even though it has reached it $250k goal, Hendo is still accepting funding until December 15th to help perfect their technology, allowing users to glide on any surface, and designing a hoverpark for current use.
