Working hoverboard revealed by French artist

275x250.jpg A French artist has unveiled a working hoverboard as his latest creation - and revived the childhood dreams of men everywhere.

Nils Guadagnin says his creation - a copy of the hoverboard from the movie Back to the Future II - was created with the help of a Dutch firm of levitation experts.

The life-size model has gone on show in a number of galleries and uses an electromagnetic system in the board and plinth to levitate, while a laser system stabilises it in the air.

Unfortunately the hover board is not powerful enough to support the weight of someone standing on it... so your ideas of recreating any Marty McFly moments will have to be put on hold, for now.
