Is This A Real Working ‘Back To The Future’ Hoverboard? (Video)
  |  @   |  

We’ve seen glimpses of the possibility of a real working hoverboard, the floating skateboard made famous in Back to the Future II, in the past, but nothing that someone could actually get on and ride.

Yesterday a video was uploaded by a company called HUVr, which claims to show the first real-deal working hoverboard ever created. It begins with Back to the Future star Christopher Lloyd showing up in a DeLorean (as he tends to do) and handing off the high-tech board to skateboarding legend Tony Hawk before Hawk and other celebrities talk about being the first to experience something no one thought they’d ever get to experience.

At first glance and without any other knowledge the video might just blow your mind. But there’s more going on here than first meets the eye. Click on over to the other side to see the video.

Watch Now: Someone Made A Flying ‘Back To The Future’ DeLorean
  |  @   |  

Ever wanted to see a real DeLorean flying through the air before it zips off through space and time to another decade, century, or millennia, just as it did at the end of Back to the Future and in Back to the Future II?

Well, that’s probably difficult to pull off with a full-sized DeLorean considering we don’t yet have the flying car sci-fi movies have promised us, but it’s not stopping folks from making a scale model of the car and taking to the skies.

As you’ll see in the video below, someone did just that and, along with the help of that famous Back to the Future music score, it’s almost just like the real thing. Sorta.

‘Back To The Future’ Sneaker Designer Tinker Hatfield Promises Self-Lacing MAG By 2015
  |  @   |  

Pure excitement quickly turned to sheer disappointment recently when it was announced that Nike was going to release the MAG, the actual self–tying sneaker that Michael J. Fox‘s Marty McFly character wore in Back to the Future II, BUT that they would only be releasing a limited 1,500 pairs of the shoe via auction (which, on the first day, were running many thousands of dollars per pair) and they would, sadly, not be self–lacing.

But that does not appear to be the end of it. Legendary shoe engineer Tinker Hatfield, the man who designed this brand new Nike MAG and invented the original Pump sneakers, was on hand at the release party for the MAG and had some encouraging words for those saddened by the lack of self–lacing.

Nike Unveils Limited Edition ‘Back To The Future 2’ Sneaker, The MAG
  |  @   |  

It’s very much likely that we all at one point or another have dreamed of those crazy fictional things from the “future” we’ve seen created for movies, TV shows, comics, and video games somehow being made into a reality some day. And perhaps the movie that presented the most fun and intriguing futuristic goodies to bring to life, was of course Back to the Future II.

The most iconic futuristic item shown in the movie would have to be the hoverboard””a skateboard without wheels that hovers a foot or so above the ground””which hasn’t been mass–produced…yet…though one artist did build his own working hoverboard a while back.

But after that, it’s all about the self–lacing shoes that Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) wore in the movie, called the Nike MAG. And now those very shoes are a reality…sorta. A reality for those of us with a lot of money sitting around, anyway.
