Most of us would have watched Back to the Future by now, and Marty McFly’s hoverboard is definitely one of the cooler gadgets from the science fiction setting, where we are left wondering just when will tomorrow’s technology arrive today? The future is now if Mattel has their ways, conjuring a full-scale replica of the hoverboard that was used by hero Marty McFly. The only drawback is, this hoverboard of Mattel’s does not hover, although it will come with the ability to play back different ‘whooshing sounds’, leaving your imagination to get the rest of the job done.
As to how close it will be when it comes to hovering, gliding across the majority of surfaces would be the most apt description at the moment. Orders are being taken at the moment, where the final product will ship before Christmas, making this a potential hit. It is said to be a high cost item, so a minimum number of orders are required before production commences.
