While Tinker Hatfield set the Internet ablaze with confirmation that Power Laces would be a reality in 2015, further Back to the Future-esque dreams continue to become a reality. Or maybe not? Dubbed the HUVr, a team claims to have cracked the hover technology and enlisted a number of personalities that include the aforementioned Hawk, Moby and ScHoolboy Q to take them for a spin during an event in Los Angeles.

While it’s relatively clear that we’re dealing with a promotional stunt, it remains to be seen if there’s any truth to HUVr’s aspirations or if there is a brand behind the anti-gravity shenanigans.
