We Were Promised Jetpacks, But We'll Take Hoverboards

The dream of a floating skateboard may finally be a reality

WHAT: Only 26 years after Marty McFly rode a hoverboard in Back to the Future Part II, the floating skateboard may be a reality. This week the mysterious HUVr Corp launched a campaign complete with a promo video of skateboarder Tony Hawk delivering a protoptype of the supposed hoverboard to Christopher Lloyd (AKA Doc Brown). More intriguing, the clip shows several people riding the thing.

VERDICT: Awesome! We're hoping this hoverboard is real and not a viral marketing stunt. We're also hoping Biff Tannen doesn't beat us up.
