Hover Board for Real

March 30th, 2005 | Filed under: Design, Future, Mechanical Tech, Products | 19 Comments »

Remember those classified ads for hoverboards along with x-ray glasses? They’re still at it, but this time it’s for real. Future Horizons is offering construction plans for a ‘real’ hoverboard. Floating 1 inch off the ground, it’s not quite a dream hoverboard, but you could build it with non-fictional parts for $500 or buy one fully assembled for $9000.

    I really appreciate this idea, and got a better idea of antigravity technology when I watched the movie back to the future ; I believe that this idea would eliminate and replace gas engines without moving machanics mechanisms . I like the idea of light compaqed weight . no radiator not anti freeze or heavy dangerous components and cooling systems built into transportation would easily be easy to build in more space and safer equipment for better energy and accident efficient transportations cars,buses, transports, air planes, and just about anything that transports.

    that hover board is cool and all but only hovering one inch that kinda sucks but still kinda cool i guess. but using plasmagnetic levitation or electromagnetic induction rather then using propellers to lift the hover-board/you,it would be better and probably lift you higher and would last as long as you like(forever if the theory’s or correct.)but thats just what i found out through an hour of searching on the net.and also who would pay 9000 dollars to anyone to build a hover-board when you can build one for under 500 that just sounds crazy to me.

    people have idea’s-it would never be a board it would be round with baby jet engines driving propellers-you will not see one untill it can be produced by left overs and then it will require a polots licence-but dont worry cigerette companies will still be around

    That’d be cool idea as a hovercraft/board that can be used for going over stuff etc. but the design seen by me would be breathing quite a bit of carbon monoxide! The idea is good but a lawnmower engine is undesirable. Very loud too.
