So where does the HENDO hoverboard stand today? Well, about 1 inch off the ground. As you can see from the video above, the prototype is real and it works! But to see it hover in person, and better yet, to defy gravity by riding it, is something you need to experience as well.
With the support of the Kickstarter community, we all can. We need your help to put the finishing touches on the Hendo Hoverboard, to help us produce them, and to create places to ride them.
The folks at Hendo also say that this is their 18th prototype. It supports one human, and doesn't over any surface. It actually requires a metal ground to work with its magnets. Check out the video:
Of course, not everyone was excited about it. The New York Times reporters who tried it out say it isn't the Hoverboard like in the movie.
It's also apparently very noisy. The Verge said it has a "high-pitched screech" and a "cacophony of squeals."
The real reason for this so called Hoverboard could actually be the company's publicity stunt for building foundation systems to prevent earthquake damage.
The business plan is to develop magnetic technologies and license patents to builders, engineering firms, the Green Goblin and anyone else who might need to hover something.
Mr. Henderson may be a dreamer, but he is enough of a realist to understand that people are likely to be more interested in hovering skateboards than they are in his ideas for new kinds of building foundations.
Hendo wants to build hoverboard parks for it, which could be the start or showcase for its building foundations tech.
So a real-life Hoverboard that will work on any surface is probably, still very far away.
