Eight months later, Tony is back with a video of him riding anactualhoverboard — or, at least, the closest thing we’ve got to date.
The board in the video above is the Hendo — a project that set out to raise$250,000 on Kickstarter, and has since raised nearly 2x that with almost a month to go.
If you haven’t heard of the Hendo before, there are a few things you should know before you gettooexcited. It only hovers on top of certain surfaces (non-ferromagnetic conductors, like a sheet of aluminum), so you’re probably not going to be zipping around the streets with this thing. Without any real propulsion system to speak of, you’re not so much blasting around like Marty McFly as you are sliding around aimlessly. It’s not shipping untilat leastOctober 2015 (and this is Kickstarter, so delays are a given). Oh, and this first one coststen thousand dollars…
But damn, does it look fun.
(fun fact:the guy who makes the “I’m Johnny Knoxville” joke in the video above is actually Dave Carnie, one of the guys who helped launch Knoxville’s career in the first place)
