Hendo Hoverboards – World’s first REAL hoverboard by Hendo Hover — Kickstarter. Kickstarter has a very new and very interesting product. For those of you who do not know what Kickstarter is – it is crowdsourcing platform designed so that many small investors can finance a new idea and transform it into an actual product. In this case it is the Hendo Hoverboard. Too bad it won’t be ready for this Christmas. But, here it is finally – the world’s first hoverboard. Much like the one Michael J. Fox rode in the movie “Back To The Future 2”, this board actually hovers. It hovers by using magnets over a thin metallic surface.
But wait, Michael J. Fox’s hoverboard didn’t need to hover over metallic surfaces! Well, that part is true, we have not developed the technology to safely hover a small object over concrete spaces yet, however, this is still quite cool. And, if it catches on, there will be special hovercraft-metallic-surfaced-hovercraft parks. So, you can do tricks like the skateboarders do.
The Hendo Hoverboards are the brain-child of founders Greg and Jill Henderson. One other great thing about the hoverboard is it will be assembled in Los Gatos, California. Made in USA!
