Our dreams are finally being realised (yes we are children of the 80s). Toy company Mattel have announced that they shortly hope to start manufacturing the infamous hoverboard from Back To The Future, the only catch is that the hoverboard will not only be ridiculously expensive but the item will only go to production if enough pre-orders are made.
Oh, and the board won’t actually hover but will “glide over most surfaces” and feature “multiple whooshing sounds”.
Gliding/hovering not quite sure what the difference is but looking forward to seeing the rich middle aged geeks get onto these this Christmas, maybe they'll let us have a go...
