On Kickstarter appeared a project that is sure to interest fans of the movie “Back to the Future” and not only them. We are talking about a prototype hoverboard – flying board, which was called Hendo and really allows you to hover above the ground. The principle of operation of the device is based on the Earnshaw theorem and Lenz’s Law, describing the properties of magnetic fields. Thus, you can fly on Hendo only on a special coating.

However, the device can be called the first working prototype that implements exactly the opportunity that fans of the film dream about. In just a day, since the start, the project has collected nearly $ 200,000, despite the fact that the developers Greg and Jill Henderson are not yet ready to offer the present vehicle.

The price of the hoverboard at this stage is 300 dollars, i.e. it is a developer kit that contains everything needed for making a hoverboard and a platform that is suitable for floating which supporters who can then assemble into functional beta devices.

It's getting there...
