Flying skateboards 2015: really you?





I’m sure many of you have watched the movie trilogy “Back to the Future.” And lovers of fiction will agree with me that one of the coolest, unusual and desirable things (in addition to the time-machine-based coupe DeLorean, of course) is a flying board Marty McFly (despite the fact that it is pink!), Which he got the second part of the famous kinoepopenii Robert Zemeckis. Although until 2015 (the duration of the second part) just two years, on the horizon, still do not see any flying skateboards .

Yes, some of the scientific minds have attempted to create a flying machine (protopity first appeared in the early 20th century, but this idea does not end good), there were a hologram, voice assistants and so much more, it has been shown in the film. But flying skateboards we still do not. And the solution to this problem the company has agreed to do Haltek Industries, which holds that “the world needs a hoverboard,” and she is going to start developing them. True, there is one small catch – your enthusiasm is valued at $ 1 million. This sum will allow it (no, not immediately release the hoverboard on the market) to do its development. Submit a final product the company will try in the third quarter of 2015.

The seriousness of his approach reinforces the company is quite an impressive amount of information about the early prototypes tested, graphs, formulas, and even prepared a concept application for mobile devices that will control the Hoverboard.


Those who dare to invest in this venture on the website Indiegogo as much as 10 thousand dollars or more, “will be among the first to receive real working hoverboard in June 2015.” For the sub-$ 1000 a person will get a miniature version of the hoverboard, for 50 – he will be able to vote for the selection of the best design for a flying board, and a 10 – it will open access to the “research department” on the official website of the company.


Despite the fact that some potential technologies that will be required for the production of hoverboard still do not even exist, the company focuses specifically on two developments which, she says, will be able to help in this task. In particular states: flying bicycles and batteries based on lithium and air developed by IBM, which can convert the energy of oxygen while being very light and at the same time powerful enough to be practically infinite source of power. But even in the good fortune of these developments is hard to believe.


To continue their work, Haltek Industries need to collect 27 August 1 million. For those who still dare to invest the project, say that his key slogan goes something like this:

“Maybe it’s not impossible, but it’s definitely worth a try.”
