You Can Now Buy Back To The Future Style Hoverboards

PEOPLE have long moaned that, now we live in the future, where are our hoverboards? Well, glad you asked because some bright spark has decided to do something about it!

ZBoard have been inspired by the hoverboard in Back to the Future and manufactured a hi-tech weight sensing electric skateboard, which has the same design as the board Marty McFly rode.

The limited edition board uses a pressure pad on the front which allows you to move without ever needing to put your feet on the ground and can manage 20 miles of electrically-assisted skateboarding.

There will only be 25 boards produced and, better yet, all profits are being given to the Michael J Fox foundation for Parkinson’s Research.

The board is priced in at $1,500 on IndieGoGo.

Of course, it doesn’t actually float, but it is the nearest thing we’ve got AND the prediction is that would all happen in 2015, so we’ve got a while to wait yet.

Either way, watch the splendid board in action now.
