Hoverboard No Longer A Sci-Fi Fantasy

Hoverboard No Longer A Sci-Fi Fantasy

French artist Nils Guadagnin has created a working prototype of an iconic piece of fictional technology.

French artist Nils Guadagnin, has designed the Hoverboard, a copy of the iconic hoverboard from the movie, Back To The Future II. The board contains an electromagnetic system to levitate it, while a laser system stabilizes the object in mid-air. While the Hoverboard does float, it cannot carry someone on it yet. With advancements in technology, however, we may see people zipping around in hoverboards in the future.

Watch a video about the project below:
