Hover board.

Hoverboard

Hoverboard. Well it ain’t Back to the Future, that’s fer sure, but it’s a start. Fully assembled $9000.00, plans $49.00. Video here. And here’s another hoverboard project underway in a garage. And finally, apparently sometime this year

 This personal hoverboard uses high performance hovercraft technology to lift a 250+lb rider 3 inches above the ground. A 6 horsepower 4-stroke gasoline engine spins a 5 bladed propeller to force air under the craft. Some air is diverted into a flexible skirt around the perimeter of the craft. The skirt is a type of air bag which helps to trap air under the craft to increase efficiency and hover higher.

    Hmm, not sure about finally. It is after all only 1 inch off the floor. Which I suppose just about qualifies as hover. :-)

  • i dont think the hoverboard with the airbag and gas is the way to go plus its alot of money to spend on,knowonw is going to buy them,you guys need to make a hoverboard with magnets to hover on magnettic balance waves,and hover more then 1 inch it should hover 11 or 12 inches off the ground,it should light up at night time so people can see you at night,it should have solar pannels on the sides for electric, cans you guys make one?oh and make it so you dont have to use your foot to push it,it should have 3 speeds low medium and high,and make it so people can afford one,i would love to have a hoverboard,i wonder if they will have them in 20.15 like in back to the future?? thank you ps.i made a hoverboard model out of cardboard and trying to make it hover useing magnets.
