Ever since Back to the Future 2, hoverboards have been awesome to board-loving tech geeks like me.
Some of my first impressions of hoverboards being realistic came from the back of Boys’ Life magazines that I subscribed to during my Boy Scouting years. Here is the ad that I always wanted to purchase but never did.
Another pop culture reference to hoverboards related to startups comes from Ali G. I remember this clip when he pitched a VC on his hoverboard idea haha.
This summer on the lake I got to experience flyboarding. It was awesome and started to feel a lot like hoverboarding. Here’s a video of me on the lake doing that.
The same day I was experiencing flyboarding, others on the lake were doing a lake style hover board like this one.
Hoverboards are awesome and I’m excited to see them coming to life!
What are your thoughts on hoverboards?
