Where form meets function

The people want two things: Power Laces and hoverboards. Around March of this year, the world was treated to a mind-bending video for a new product that promised that the latter was finally becoming a reality – as touted by Tony Hawk and Christopher Lloyd himself. Ultimately, it turned out to be a fast one pulled off by Funny or Die, but the fervor with which people responded ultimately culminated in the announcement that Hendo had finally actually created a product that could potentially turn users into budding Marty McFly’s. Relying on a special magnetic field which levitates the Hendo Hoverboard off the ground, the proof of concept is certainly there but we’ve still not reached the point where Robert Zemeckis’ vision is a reality.
