HENDO, A Real-Life Hoverboard That Uses Magnetic Fields to Levitate an Inch Above the Ground

Hendo Hover of Los Gatos, California has created HENDO, a real-life hoverboard that uses magnetic fields to hover one inch off the ground above special surfaces. The company has also launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to build development kits for the board and help create areas to ride them. While the project invokes a certain iconic 1980s film sequel, HENDO is careful not to mention that project by name.

Yep, there was a movie. However, our attorneys have told us not to go there. So this is as far as we’ll take it.

It was clear to me many years ago that I was not going to be a top ten recording engineer. That it was not in my DNA to record top ten records, but it was certainly in my DNA to be surrounded by great musicians and to help them live up to their potential.
