“Back to the Future” promised us many things: Mr. Fusion, being someone’s density, and hoverboards. More than anything else, hoverboards have been the thing that we’ve longed for more than anything (well, maybe a close second to a time-travelling DeLorean). Well, we haven’t perfected human-sized hoverboards just yet, but to keep the dream alive, we have found these Back to the Future Desktop Hoverboards.
Each Back to the Future Desktop Hoverboard comes with a base which contains 5 high-grade rare earth magnets. These make the “track” which the hovering board (made of pyrolytic graphite) floats over. In fact, because the “track” has a slight bend to it, you can actually give the board a push and watch it slide back and forth and back and forth. Not only is the Back to the Future Desktop Hoverboard a great desk toy, but it’s also an instant science fair experiment (you just add the explanations and poster board and all that).
