We want to believe so much.
Granted, we’ve been burned before – it was just March of this year when Tony Hawk punked the entire Internet with a prank video of him riding a “hoverboard” that woefully turned out to be nothing but a lie.
But this time it’s real. This time, you’ll see. You’ll all see.
Yes, that’s the Hendo board, which is being touted as the world’s first hoverboard. It only hovers about an inch or so off the ground, and it’s not exactly the brave new world promised by Back to the Future, but it’s a start. (They’ve launched a Kickstarter, which, with 26 days to go, has raised $458,000 of its $250,000 goal.)
Below, an apology from Mr. Hawk regarding his pernicious lies from earlier this year. Buy us a hoverboard, Tony, and we’ll forgive you. Maybe.
