ArcaBoard - a 'real hoverboard'

Space firm creates ArcaBoard - a 'real hoverboard'

4 hours ago

A US-based aerospace company says it has created a flying platform that lets its rider float above land and water.

The aircraft has been dubbed the ArcaBoard - the firm appears to be avoiding calling it a "hoverboard" to avoid confusion with the controversial wheel-based vehicles.

Since it posted a video showing several test flights, some news sites have questioned if the footage had been faked.

But the man behind the project told the BBC that, apart from a little colour-correction, the video had been undoctored.

It looks cool but is it really real? Why is this not viral? Lexus made a quick video of a hover board that could fly only at a man made park and it went superviral, this is the first time im hearing about this and its not even new...im guessing its not as cool as it looks
