What is it? In the year of Marty McFly and Back to the Fu­ture Day, it’s fit­ting that some­one’s made a hov­er­board – but let’s get one thing straight: Hov­er­board is not a real hov­er­board, it’s ac­tu­ally a skate­board with a sin­gle, cen­tral wheel. But wait! It looks like you’re float­ing from the front, and it can play mu­sic and light up in dif­fer­ent colours. What more do you need?

When’s it due? July 2016.

Why are we ex­cited? All but the most ba­sic model come with sonar sen­sors to keep Hov­er­board level and par­al­lel to the ground, which its cre­ators claim gives the im­pres­sion of lev­i­ta­tion for riders. It may not be an ac­tual hov­er­board, but it looks like a great bit of fun in its own right.
