The World’s First Hoverboard

It may rely on magnets, but there’s finally a real-life hoverboard that isn’t just a marketing hoax.

It’s called the Hendo hoverboard, and you can currently pre-order one on Kickstarter for $10,000.

The Hendo relies on the simple concept of using magnets to levitate the hoverboard over a metal surface, but the requirement of a special surface means you won’t be floating over water or concrete any time soon.

Founded by Jill and Greg Henderson, the Hendo uses their proprietary Magnetic Field Architecture system to focus the magnetic field so that the board can support the rider and cause the Hendo to hover over a 1-inch cushion of air.
