Hoverboards For Real

Amazing news: Hoverboards are on the way…For real!

Using four disc-shaped engines on the bottom of the board to create a magnetic field that allows the board to hover about an inch off the ground, the Hendo Hoverboard is sleek and fascinating.

Inventors of the Hendo Hoverboard, Greg and Jill Henderson, are launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise $250,000. I have no doubt they will exceed that goal within few days.

“That’s why we picked the hoverboard: to capture that attention. If one in 10 people realize there is another use for this stuff, that would be a great success.” – Greg Henderson’

Capitalizing on the popularity of the hoverboard to get media buzz and funding, the inventors have something a lot more practical in mind: making buildings float to better withstand earthquakes. Imagine a house or a building that you can lift out with the flip of a switch thanks to the technology behind the hoverboard. The potential ravages of earthquakes and floods will no longer hold sway over occupants of these buildings.
