We've covered the Airboard before, but this follow-up includes a video. The rider of the Airboard stands atop a 5-foot wide vehicle while it glides along the ground on a cushion of air. The hoverboards are controlled by the driver's body weight and two levers.

Implications - This might seem like something out of Back to the Future, but the Airbord is as real (and as cool) as can be. With its futuristic design that uses cutting-edge technology, this is just the kind of ride that people will certainly be dying to have when it becomes widely available. The future is here, ladies and gentlemen; and it's called the Airboard.
