So we are still some way from getting actual hoverboards, however what is probably the closest thing available currently has this week been launched on Kickstarter, equipped with a mono wheel mechanism and an electric motor, the Hoverboard by Hoverboard Technologies will allow users to reach a max speed of 16mph with a range of up to 12 miles from a single charge.
Once the battery has been drained users can recharge the on-board battery from flat in just 16 minutes according to the company.
The hoverboard also features gyroscope stabilisation, making it feel as though you are hovering.
The project is looking to raise $500,000 to get into production, you can help them do that by pledging at the source link below.
