    When I was a kid Back to the Future introduced us to the concept of hover boards. Now, 25 years later, hover boards have become a reality. And I am now too fat and old to get safely use one. But cool anyway:

    I saw this earlier today too, got excited about the idea of having one.

    But the videos look sketchy, almost like its a joke. How do those people bend their knees like that and not fall backwards.. :suspect:

    But if they ever go public I might snatch a few shares just in case.

    Thought it looked sketchy with the one person moving along by swinging his foot alongside for momentum... never touched the ground. How does that work?

    If I hang off the side of my table and kick my foot... I'm not going anywhere.
