Including death, danger and a large possibility of terrorism during construction.

What's wrong with hoverpaths? We don't have to uproot cities. Just go smoky and make lil' paths :)

little paths wouldnt work w/ large #s of people,  too much traffic

Do you think that with the present-day technology, there might be some way we can get hoverboards to work? Honestly, I don't think it'd be too hard. If you were able to get two strongly opposite magnetic structures--One in the board and the other underground, wouldn't this work?
Idk hmmm but that would be so cool

Someone mentioned something before about mag-lev trains.  Bear in mind that, though they exist, they are not very far off the track, and it takes a heck of a lot of power to do just that.  There is something hoverboard-like that currently exists, but, if I recall correctly, it can't go very high off the ground, and the creators decided not to sell it due to safety concerns.  However, I think that they were used in the making of some movie, in the place of special effects.

There were hoverboards in some back to the future movie, but I think they just did it with special effects.
