On this week’s The Drill Down podcast the White House wants to police social media speech, the FBI pulls data from Facebook, should schools install facial recognition cameras, crossing the English Channel via hoverboard and much, much more.
This week, Taylor Swift has “˜bad blood’ with Apple Music, what may be coming in the new Apple Watch 2, Nest‘s new camera, Twitter‘s secret project, Lexus teases a real hoverboard … and much much more on The Drill Down.
Back in March the internet exploded after a video of what appeared to be a real working hoverboard—the wheel-less, floating skateboard made famous by Back to the Future II—surfaced online. The video, as it turned out, was a Funny or Die hoax.
But people just love their Back to the Future technology dreams (I cannot WAIT for one of those fancy pizza rehydrators personally), so it was only a matter of time before the hoverboard showed up again. This time, however, it appears that the hoverboard, which is called the Hendo Hoverboard, actually works…and you can reserve yours for only $10,000.

MattyCollector has one of the sweetest pre-orders of all time going on right now with the first release of a replica hoverboard from the seminal 1980s trilogy of films Back To The Future.
Now, I know what you’re thinking, but while I doubt it’s ability to be a fully functioning hoverboard that hovers and moves like a skateboard, unless it’s on water (you need power for that), it is without a doubt one of the raddest replicas for any film memorabilia collector. And while the idea alone is enough to get any fans heart racing, wait until you hear the details.
