The World’s First Real Hoverboard is Here!

Hendo is introducing the world’s first real hoverboard.

A Kickstarter campaign by Hendo now lets you purchase the world’s first real hoverboard, for $10,000 you can purchase one of the first 10 hoverboards ever made by the company.

If you do not have $10,000, you can spend between $299 – $949 for a developer’s kit with an engine for you to build your own hoverboard (or hover anything else if you feel like you’re up for it).

The kits come with different versions, some of which you can control the propulsion via an app.

Apparently technology behind it is similar to those that propel Maglev trains.

Before you get too excited, the New York Times tried out the hoverboard for themselves and reported that it only works on select surfaces, and the battery life apparently was not that impressive.

Sadly it appears from the article, that the developer’s main business plan is to develop the technology and license it to builders and focus on their core business which involves building foundations.

Here’s to hoping someone who orders one of the Whiteboxes does something super cool with it.
