Hoverboards are here, ATS. I don't have time right now to do a lengthy review but all of the information and a video are provided in the link. Check it out!



The science at work here is actually pretty easy to explain. Know how magnets repel one another when their like poles are facing? And remember how rubbing a magnet on something, like a paperclip, briefly makes it magnetic too?

Well, there you go.

When the hovering object is powered up, it magnetizes the surface below it using induction and that creates a magnetic field that pushes the objects apart. But that also means by definition that the hoverboard only works above conductive surfaces like aluminum and — you guessed it — copper.

The novel work, for which they are seeking patents, is in the efficiency of the induction process and the ability to control the movements of the hovering objects.

Yep 2015 is when they were depicted in "Back to the future"
and Voila! Here they are in 2015. Tell me technology isn't
handed down. Everything is done according to the stars/time.
And they pass it off to our dumbasses as being forseen by
"Visionaries".

Now where's my hover car? My hover house? Wife?

A hoverboard which can only fly over highly conductive surfaces seems pretty useless to me. Unless we are going to start building our roads and walk ways out of metal. I highly doubt they'll be able to patent this idea, it's way too obvious and I'm willing to bet there are already patents on the idea.

It would make for an interesting bumper car entertainment booth at the local fair.

Or a skateboarding park. The metal surface could be covered in foam or rubber, but the hoverboard would still work with the magnetic field of the metal underneath.

The biggest disappointment for me is the short battery life. Hopefully it leads to Back to the Future kinds of hover boards, but I sincerely doubt it.

Very cool....This is nothing more than the Lenz effect but very cool non the less...I would be very interested to know how they keep the coils from overheating....

sounds like they are trying to generate some income for another project to me. Because this is as unworkable as you can get.

I like the forward-thinking of the creators. Floating, earthquake-proof buildings? Coolcoolcool.
It's also kind of Edison-esque. "Hmm...no surfaces for our hoverboards, eh? THEN WE'LL PAVE THE STREETS WITH COPPER!"

Maybe its time to buy shares in some copper mining companies. Thanks for the heads up. Seriously, this sounds like something useful.

Aluminum works too. So would gold but...never mind.

You do know what that song is about, right?

Look at the crop in the fields at 1.08...

I'm waiting for when they figure out how to make on any surface, not just metal ones.

This link has a lot of explanations.

This professionally produce video is great.


I live in the reality where I tell the truth on ATS ... and then POW!

Or conducting silicon.

Or conductive hemp fiber resin.

It is patented and trademarked.

MFA(tm) is the trademark. Magnetic Field Architecture.

Crowd funding goal is over the top in less than 20 hours.

A hoverboard skatepark is a cool idea.

notice how when he "pushes off" at the bottom he gains no speed

its a no go for skaters if you cant gain / conserve speed by pushing off (or some other method)

like a pendulum winding down.

Here they are in 2015.


So it's still pretty much what I'm say'n.
