Kick, Push, Fly: A Real Hoverboard for Lupe?

French artist Nils Guadagnin made a legit, real life hoverboard. Sick! Check out the video below.

“McFly” is right.

According to Gizmodo, “The board floats through simple electromagnetism, but the more brilliant part of the design seems to be a laser stabilization system that, we’re assuming, dynamically adjusts the magnets to keep the board afloat under duress. Just watch Nils push on the board near the end of the clip. It responds with little more than a shrug.”

We wonder how much weight this thing can support at the moment, and how long it’ll be til we can try to be like Marty McFly.

Who do you think will be the first to own a working hoverboard -¬† Lupe Fiasco? or Pharrell? Click here to listen to Lupe’s “Kick, Push”.
