Hoverboard Fails and People Vs. Technology || A Compilation by FailArmy
A hoverboard is a fictional levitating board used for personal transportation, popularized by the Back to the Future film franchise. Hoverboards are generally depicted as resembling a skateboard without wheels. During the 1990s there were rumors, fueled by director Robert Zemeckis, that hoverboards were in fact real, but not marketed because they were deemed too dangerous by parents groups. These rumors have been conclusively debunked. The hoverboard concept has been used by many authors in various forms of media.
The Guinness World Records recognizes the term hoverboard to include autonomously powered personal levitators. In May 2015, the Romania-born Canadian inventor Catalin Alexandru Duru set a Guinness World Record by travelling a distance of 275.9 m at heights up to 5 m over a lake, on an autonomously powered hoverboard of his own design.
