Hello? Hello? Anybody home? Huh? Think, Mattel, think. And so they did. Finally.
I’m going to file this one as my first “want” blog post. I’m sure I’ll never see it, but man, that would be awesome. I just stumbled upon an article detailing the release of a replica Hoverboard used in the movie Back to the Future, by Mattel. Even thought it won’t be released until 2015, and will only be produced in a “minimum orders required” style, meaning it will be really expensive, it is still pretty cool. Pre-order sale will take place in March.
The only thing is that is doesn’t actually “hover”. It glides over most surfaces except water. I’ll still take a Glideboard any day. I’m not going to go into much detail here because I’m sure I’ll never actually see it first hand and most of you won’t either. If you want to read more, you can check out the full article here
