We did a piece on the Hendo Hoverboard a few years ago, and it’s as badass as you can imagine, which is why this next bit is pretty cool.
Professional skateboarder Tony Hawk had the opportunity to test a real deal hoverboard that floats about three quarters of an inch above the ground.
Seems the pro had no trouble spinning and gliding around on the Hendo, which can only be used on top of a special metal surface. The ability to achieve the hovering affect comes from magnetic fields.
Pretty sweet huh!? If you want to check out a more in depth look about the hoverboard you can do so below.
