The hoverboard is pretty cool – and has foot pads for traction on top and four hover engine housings underneath for lift and stability. There is also 1 inch of ride height for taking on hover-ramps.

It’s all to do with what has been titled Magnetic Field Architecture by the man leading the development of the technology, Greg Henderson.

His company Hendo Hover ultimately thinks this technology could have profound implications about the way communities are built.
