Hoverboards Are Now A Real Thing


Not sure what in the Marty McFly is going on at HUVr Tech but Tony Hawk, ScHoolboy Q, Moby and a few other celebs recently joined Christopher Lloyd, aka “Back To The Future’s” Emmett “Doc” Brown, for the unveiling of the real-deal hoverboard – or so they claim.

Sorry to burst anyone’s bubble here, but speaking strictly from the perspective of four-wheeled skateboard physics, the tomfoolery going on here is very questionable. But who is Rat Lord to dampen anyone’s belief in technology or the new age of epic advertising trollage? No worries, I’ll wait and let you be the judge. Click play on the video above to watch the hoverboards in action.


It turns out that we were correct: hoverboards are fake! There’s an entire video featuring Christopher Lloyd admitting that he was “duped” too, by the folks over at Funny Or Die. Check it out below.

    This must be fake

  • Tom

    Yeah, but do they work on water?!?!?

  • Scifiguy86

    What?!?! TAKE MY MONEY!!!!!

  • Bryan Antolin

    Why do they all have something going on, on the top back of shoulders?
    Look at the shirt… its lifted as if they were being carried in a green screen.

  • kosh

    These will probably be like 10k when they come out.

  • João Paulo Martins

    Total fake… If these were real, we were travelling in anti-gravity powered “planes” or some sort of airship… and, in case you missed it, it’s still not the case! Get real!

  • You Get Real

    go to their website. They’re all from MIT. They wouldn’t make that shit up on the spot and go through all that time and money just to produce a 4 minute b.s. video.

  • João Paulo Martins

    Yeah right. MIT guys and the only immediate “dream” was to produce a “skateboard”… and the military would allow that. Dorks 😀 Observe what’s going on with their shirts. They’re being pulled up.

    “What began as a summer project in 2010 at the MIT Physics Graduate Program has evolved into one of the most exciting independent products to be developed out of MIT since the high-powered lithium-ion batteries developed by Yet-Ming Chiang in 2001. Our team consists of materials science, electricity & magnetism experts who’ve solved an important part of one of science’s mysteries: the key to antigravity.

    The HUVr Board team ultimately aims to improve the efficiency, speed and sustainability of mass transportation. Yet rather than spend several more years closed off from the world while investing in research and development, the team and our world-classinvestors have worked to change the economics R&D by marketing this exciting consumer product in order to fund ongoing R&D.”
    they made this to fund the rest of their project, random conspiracy theories won’t make you look smart especially if you’re not even willing to look at information provided to you

  • João Paulo Martins

    Information… I’ve learned to suspect of information withing Internet boundaries. You’re the one who doesn’t look very smart when believing in everything you see on the Internet 😀 Experimenting is believing and I didn’t touch any MIT experiment to be able to believe. We’ll see about this in the near future.

  • john V

    Its fake … fire the video guy lol… we got shadows of cranes in the video and you can go to my page and see a screen shot of a harness… Facebook.com/djvial Its right on top !

  • dnzo

    So, they made an extensive video full of stars probably not for cheap, set up a website with information… I don’t get it. It’s clearly fake, but then why go through all this effort? Waste of energy that could have been put into actually making hoverboards!!!

  • Jurgen Krause Jr.

    HOVERBOARDS DON’T WORK ON WATER! Unless you’ve got power

  • JunkeeGeekee

    can’t believe some people actually fall into this! lol and i thought people are a lot smarter these days lol

  • vsdsd

    To anyone believing this is real: hahahahaha!! you’re moron hahaha!!!

  • Andrea Sammut De Marco

    Or they’re hyping us up for a BTTF reunion?

  • IzirAtig

    people are stupid by default

  • frosty

    it’s not anti gravity it’s propelled like a drone so yes this is and can be very real, same shit they use to operate drones. I personally have a drone, the operate off cell phones and have the same behaviors as these boards

  • True

    3:08… is the man speeding by leg over the ground… ? That’s fake I think and people try to understand how it works 😀

  • Mario

    It’s a publicity stunt, guys, come on! You can totally tell they are wearing harnesses and that the cables were removed digitally. It is not technically feasible. You would need some sort of magnetic apparatus under to operate another magnetic device over it… like certain subways or trains. Sorry to burst everyone’s bubbles…

  • Mario

    Have to admit there are a lot of zombies out there!! :-)

  • Mario

    Publicity stunt for Mazda… you see it right on top! I say it’s good, but not that good… since you didn’t notice the advertisement! LOL!


    HAHAHAHAHA. Physics, people. Physics. Even discussing this is atrocious.

    3:28 – crane shadow – they forgot to remove it… on the white box.
