Hendo Hoverboard celebrates ‘Back to the Future’ day in style
Hendo Hoverboard was promised to be out on 21 October 2015 if it got funded on Kickstarter for a herculean funding amount of $250,000. And that promise has been fulfilled as Ara Pax have released the next generation 2.0 beta 4-engine prototype of Hendo Hoverboard. Developed in close consultation with skateboarding star Tony Hawk this levitating skateboard is the closest competitor to Lexus Hoverboard which has made all the news after its first reveal.
It is no coincidence that the Hoverboard is released on the magical date that Marty McFly time travels to save his children. Yes 21 October is the day this Hoverboard makes its second appearance with major improvements that will elate the ones who backed the project on Kickstarter. It has a quieter hover engine, improved battery life, better riding control for balance, wireless safety switch and more efficiency.
On Kickstarter the Hendo Hoverboard had a steep price of $10,000 and obviously the people who pledged that amount were small businesses and other organizations who wanted a Hoverboard in their own park. Only a few individuals with a deep pocket have shown interest in the Hoverboard.
The hovering skateboard functions on the same principle as the Lexus Hoverboard which uses magnetic levitation to keep the board afloat with an adult human on-board. Only time will tell how these two hoverboards compete against each other for dominance. For now enjoy the Hendo Hoverboard in action.
