Could just have posted a video and that’s that but there is more to it.
So, have a look at this little documentary first.
Incredible and revolutionary product or just a fake item to create a buzz around a certain type of advertising campaign?
This Hoverboard seems real, isn’t it?
The person in this video says “this work has more technology within it than the satellite we sent to space in 2010”. Really?
If this is the case, how much will be the retail price? Who will be able to afford it and is this a concept/prototype reserved for Hollywood film industry stunt?!
Rather unclear for the time being.
Would this also just be another new trend and after a while the “toy" would be kept in a cardboard box? Or alternatively, could it create a new fun activity for existing professionals skateboarders?
Quite a few questions…but it is certain that teenagers and adults who are avid of urban surfwear will be attracted by it… According to the website “About Us” it should be ready just in time for Christmas time 2014!? (http://huvrtech.com/about.html)
Difficult to guarantee now to your children that they will get it…until the price tag is revealed. Probably a luxury skateboard equivalent to a high end mountain bike.
We could then ask clearly: what does affordable mean?
A few days ago (5th March 2014), it was reported that a small London flat could be 24 times more expensive by 2050 - reaching the gigantic amount of £36m. London Central Portfolio said prices would continue to rise in London for a few years due to demand and lack of supply. It means that investment property will then be reserved to highly ambitious individuals or private bankers. If this is reality, all accommodations might just be a buy-to-rent situation purchased by wealthy investors. This is even more alarming after another survey that “20 percent of people have no savings" - full story HERE
However, we aren’t there…still a few years to wait…but only a few months to see whether this hoverboard is the next big thing of the 21st century.
Doc Brown eventually reveals and apologies for what seemed to be the next level for skateboarders.
