We’re One (Small) Step Closer to Getting a Hoverboard

Some dude named Nils Guadagnin has made a hoverboard. Wait, don’t get excited yet — it’s only for some Back to the Future art project and not, you know, to actually go hoverboarding on. Indeed, it hovers through electromagnetism and lasers, which sounds cool but I’m pretty sure means it can only balance on that half-pillar and without anything on it, like a Back to the Future-loving nerd. Still, we’re one step closer. Scientists, you have five more years. Don’t fuck this up. Thanks to the jillion or so of you who sent this in.
