A Working Hoverboard
Read that title again. Our dreams of the 2015 portrayed in Back to the Future II just got one step closer to reality. French artist Nils Guadagnin has done what modern science could not do.

He built a working hoverboard.

According to this article from Gizmodo:
The board floats through simple electromagnetism, but the more brilliant part of the design seems to be a laser stabilization system that, we're assuming, dynamically adjusts the magnets to keep the board afloat under duress.
Ladies and gentlemen, consider the crisis of what to get me for Christmas next year solved.

I don't care what Gizmodo think, my my bullshit meter went way through the roof. That, my friends, is a fake video, I am 100% certain.

I'm not sure I will call it a bs video just yet, but I would say that it's probably just a bunch of magnets in both the board and the stand. There may be some kind of stabalization in there which would be cool, but still can't put a person on it, so utterly pointless.
