DIY ‘Back to the Future’ hoverboard actually hovers

4 Notes


Mattel announced at Toy Fair 2012 in New York that it will finally release a 1:1 replica of the  hoverboard from “Back to the Future II” and “Back to the Future III,”  with it’s set to arrive just in time for the holidays.
The “movie accurate” replica includes such details as a hole at the  front of the deck where Marty McFly, played by Michael J. Fox, ripped  out the handlebar and pole and features the same neon-rrific coloring.  According to Mattel’s press release, it also makes multiple whooshing  noises and “glides” over most surfaces. However, the company didn’t  provide much detail on how it glides, but one thing’s for sure: it does  not work on water. Dangit!
