I so want one of these. This is simply amazing technology and if they can make it happen for a skateboard, cars are next! :)
When I was a kid I wanted the hovercraft that was powered by lawnmower engines that you saw the advertisement for in the back of popular science/popular mechanics. They only sold blue prints/plans no guarantee if it work work. At least its kickstarter and not indie-go-go
What a horrible Kickstarter!!!!!! The only tier that actually gets you a hover board costs $10k OUCH!
You guys think a credit union would consider this a vehicle and provide me a low interest loan for it?????
Sharleen Alexis Siy Co you like? hehe
Thats cool :)
The only physical way this could work is with something called lenz's law and that requires a thick conductive surface underneath such as aluminum or copper plates. So it would only work over non-ferrous metals. Not that impressive...
Holy cow! I hope to try one of these one day.
Um, did you read the article? It clearly states those points - Lenz Law, and non ferrous conductor LOL
Pure awesome. I was curious about how they are powered. From their kickstarter page: "Powered by a set of rechargeable LiPo batteries, we integrate the charging system directly into the box. Right now we can give you 12-15 minutes of hover with a charge time of about 2 hours"
well finally! lol
now, we just need to pave the streets with copper so we can use these!
Only kind of... Unfortunately.
These are sooo cool! I have to have one....I must have watched the 'Back to the future' movies a hundred times apiece...even saw them in the theaters as a kid when they first came out.

Did you see how crappy that prototype actually is? also your half-pipe will need to be made of some kind of metal (its magnet based after all). I wonder how painful it will be to beef it on a metal half-pipe.
