Real-life Back to the Future 2 hoverboard

French artist Nils Guadagnin has built his very own hoverboard based on the hoverboards in Back to the Future II. It's pink, it's a board, and it actually does hover when placed on its platform. Integrated into the board and the plinth is an electromagnetic system which levitates the board. A laser system stabilises the object in the air. The board is hovering with the help of two CLM-1+ levitation modules made by Crealev. Hoverboard Project via geekologie

where can i find instructions on building a working hoverboard?

I dont mean a hovercraft, i mean a skateboard-like thing that actually hovers above the ground. i dont have a lot of money..... so i cant make one that is like a hundred bucks. i would also like for it to be simple and easy and compact.

Hover Technology

I have an idea for Hover Tech./Hover board. See if you used sound at a high enough decibel, but at a frequency humans and animals couldn't hear, it could work. Because sound is also a force, it can move things. Anyone agree or have some input?

How much thrust usally does a 9 inch fan give out ? Answered

How much thrust does a 9 inch fan give out? Also how about a 1.5 feet R/C helicopter. How much horsepower is required to lift a human. How much thrust. If you had a 100lb man and had 101lb thrust how far up in the air would the 100lb person go. Sorry really dont want to do the calculations right now.
