Hendo has a kickstarter for a magnetic hoverboard that can glide over conductive surfaces and you can have one for $10,000.
While their hoverboard is primarily intended to be self-propelled, the actions which stabilize it can also be used to drive it forward by altering the projected force on the surface below.
Currently, this surface needs to be a non-ferromagnetic conductor. Right now they use commonly available metals in a simple sheets, but they are working on new compounds and new configurations to maximize our technology and minimize costs.
Want to develop Hoverparks
While one day we expect to have hoverboards that can effortlessly float over any medium (even water!), our current technology requires special types of surfaces.
Therefore, we need a hoverpark to go with our boards, and we have been busy designing a park befitting the awesomeness of our technology.
