This REAL Hoverboard Is Coming In 2016… But Ouch At The Price Tag.
When Back to the Future Part II was released in 1989, it featured a futuristic 2015, complete with a wacky view of the future. The clothing was less-than-flattering but what got people really excited was the possibility of owning a hoverboard. The no-wheel skateboard remained a few inches off the ground at all times but moved with the ease of its wheeled cousin.
The ArcaBoard has taken fiction and turned it into reality. This machine hovers over water and pavement just like in the movie. Users can control and navigate the board with their smart phones or with the motion of their body for a more extreme experience. The design looks like a large domino piece and lasts for up to six minutes. The flying machine retails for $19,900 and will be available for sale in the spring of 2016.
The ArcaBoard can hold a person up to a maximum weight of 243lbs.
The board can move in all directions, including up.
The machine weighs 180lbs and is made of composite materials.
The ArcaBoard is available in beige, green, and blue.
The creators of the ArcaBoard are calling it a, "revolutionary breakthrough in transportation."
The ArcaBoard comes with a charger that takes six hours to recharge. Although, users can purchase the ArcaDock for $4,500 that fully recharges the unit in only 35 minutes.
The machine features a 272 horsepower engine.
The machine can go as fast as nine miles an hour.
