HUVr Makes Back to the Future Hoverboard Look Pretty Real

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

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.

I  can't believe they would go through all of this only to be revealed as an elaborate hoax.  RIDICULOUS!

When I was a kid, I had to make my skateboard out of rollerskate wheels screwed into a piece of plywood. I never did get a real skateboard, because by the time they came out, I had teenagers of my own. But I'd get one of these, even if I had to install a special magneitic levitation plate beneath the street in front of my house. Oh, and I'd wear knee and shoulder pads and wear a helmet and gloves. I've broken my left collar bone three times and my right one twice in bicycle accidents. All five times, the helmet saved my life! Very cool, though, to think about inviting all my 70+ year old friends to a hover party (forget pool parties, as none of us look good in swimming suits!).
