Hoverboards coming in 2015
Today is 21st October 2014 – exactly one year before we catch up with Back to the Future II's fictional timeline set in 2015. A startup company, Arx Pax, aims to develop a real-life hoverboard, one of the iconic props seen in the time travelling movie franchise. If their Kickstarter campaign succeeds, the first set of production "Hendo Hoverboards" will be delivered on 21st October 2015. The same technology featured in these devices could be used to keep buildings safe during earthquakes and floods, as explained in this video released today.
