Back to the Future 2 came out over 25 years ago, though it is partially set in 2015. That means we’ve had a quarter-century to figure out how to create the hoverboard that Marty McFly uses to effortlessly glide around on. Of course, we could spend our money and greatest minds coming up with far more important things, but an entire generation has grown up dreaming of one day being able to kickflip their deck and never touch the ground. And that dream, sadly, has never been fulfilled.
Now, just a few months shy of the year Marty traveled in Doc’s DeLorean, it looks like we’re closer than ever to the dream of hoverboards being a real thing. And who better to try out the clunky mass that gets a few inches off ground than Tony Hawk?
