Real Hoverboard Floats on Magnets

It's Finally Here: The Hoverboard

Hold on to your flux capacitors — French artist Nils Guadagnin has created a real-life hoverboard. It may not be the same working model you see in Back to the Future II (since you can't actually stand on it yet), but the board is designed to copy the original found in the famous 1989 film, and hopefully, with time, will be on sale at your local Target stores for $200.

Using laser stabilization technology and electromagnetism, Nils was able to float the board like David Blaine — a few inches above the ground — and just enough to swipe a ruler underneath so you know it's really floating. Check out the (must-see) demonstration video after the jump.

Back to the Future was so great... if they ever do make a hoverboard it better be modeled after that one..
