Hoverboards coming soon to us!!!

That’s one small step for Nils Guadagnin, one giant leap for mankind!
As anyone who grew up in the 80s and 90s watching Marty McFly and his awesome hover board and it actually comes to reality was such a dead buried old thought in my head, till the one and only Mr. Nils Guadagnin opened the door for all of us to let some hope in by creating his own Hoverboard, which is a project born in 2008 for an exhibition named “Back To the future”. This project is a copy of the hoverboard from the movie Back to the Future II. So, how did he pull it off? Here’s a description: “Integrated into the board and the plinth is an electromagnetic system which levitates the board. A laser system stabilises the object in the air.
In the making of this work, I was thinking about different ways of presenting sculpture. In fact it’s a reflexion on the multiple possibilities of how to give a sculpture full spatial autonomy.” After his creation to all of us I was bummed out when I couldn’t find a Wiki page for Nils Guadagnin!

Now, most people bash the idea from what I read by saying; why don’t you let go of an old idea that can barely stand still as well as it could lose its balance and tip around, but why not see it as a Beta version that quite possibly in 10-15 years it could be all over Malls and shops an actual working Hoverboard like the movie or simply go a complete different direction and get all governments and countries to install roads built entirely out of magnets, problem solved!

So, check it out for yourself all the pictures and video!

Let us know what you think?!
