Do you like freaking out? Cuz you’re about to … or already did if you read that headline. Yes, a company has invented the first “Back to the Future 2-style” hoverboard. A really freaking real hoverboard! This is the shit scientists should have been working on all along instead of that whole “climate change” ish.

Ahhh, I want one, I want one! I’m like Veruca Salt right now, just making demands. Fortunately, this hoverboard seems within our grasp — thank you, Kickstarter. They just need to raise $250,000. I don’t think it will be a problem … Jeeves, my checkbook, please!

Hendo, the company behind the hoverboard, has turned to Kickstarter to fund not just the hoverboard, but the emerging technology that runs it. This all feels like some elaborate hoax aimed straight at my dreams, but damn if I (along with about a billion other adult dreamers) don’t want to believe.

The board prototype can only float an inch off the ground and needs to run along a metal surface (magnets and whatnot) but Hendo is envisioning cutting edge skateparks designed to accommodate this frivolous technology. So what, so what, so what! I am there! Along with a bunch of other people in their 30s and 40s!

Share this article, make this company rich, do whatever it takes to get me a hoverboard!
