Quit playing games with my heart, HUVr. It’s not fair.

Actually, who am I kidding? I haven’t ridden a skateboard for 20 years and, despite trying out for the U.S. Olympic Electric Unicycle Team a couple years ago, I’m past my prime in so many categories that my back hurts just thinking about it.

Anyway, back to the fake video about the Back to the Future hoverboard. You’ll notice it looks pretty realistic and relies on several celebrities to sell the sizzle. The only things missing are a) how it’d actually address real-life physics and b) what’s actually being sold here. HUVr’s site lists December 2014 as some sort of “Destination Time,” so perhaps we’ll learn more then.
