The DeLorean might still be some way off, but in the present hoverboard technology is cruising along nicely -- and its flagship model just got an upgrade.
Hendo 2.0, the updated version of the hoverboard that caught everyone's attention exactly one year ago, has just been released, and it's quite something.
The hoverboard, the result of a collaboration with skateboard maestro Tony Hawk, works by using what is known as Magnetic Field Architecture hover engine technology.
"The hover engine creates a primary magnetic field which is then put over a candidate surface like aluminum or copper" explains Greg Henderson, co-founder and CEO of Arx Pax, the company behind the invention. "The hover engine then creates swirls of electricity and those create a secondary magnetic field, which propels the firsts."
