Answer:

A replica of the Hoverboard from Back to the Future, by a certain Nils Guadagnin. This thing actually kinda hovers, long as you don’t stand on it.

    Hoverboard, a la BTTF


  3. I quote
    “Artists recreates ‘Back to the Future II’ hoverboard…that actually hovers”

    “A French artist has created a replica of the hover board (remember, the pink one that Marty uses to escape from the clutches of Griff Tannen and his cohorts?) that actually hovers! Despite the fact that you can’t actually ride it, it’s still pretty neat. Check it out. “

    A real-life hoverboard similar to the ones seen in the Back to the Future movies. This one can’t carry any load though.

    Back to the Future :)

    Hoverboard by Nils Guadagnin.

    The geeky achievement is made possible thanks to electromagnets and lasers. Guadagnin detailed that his project, which started back in 2008, works due to the board’s integrated magic: It includes an impressive laser system which ensures the stabilization of the hoverboard in addition to an electromagnetic system which makes the levitation possible.

    Hoverboard by Nils Guadagnin

    Nils created a replica of Marty McFly’s iconic hoverboard from the Back to the future series that can actually hover — as long as nobody stands on it, that is.
