Ok, so it’s probably not what you had in mind. But let’s face it, this Back To The Future Desktop Hoverboard is about as close as you’re going to get to the ‘real thing’, at least for now. The pyrolytic graphite board hovers over a rare earth magnet base; give it a little push and it’ll go back and forth for a bit. Sure, it’s not as satisfying as carving some turns in the air, but at least it’s officially licensed merchandise and not come cheap trinket. The desktop toy will attract a bit of attention, and keep you excited about the possibility of seeing the real thing one day soon (Google might actually be able to build one, but won’t). It’s $40.
