Hoverboards...
« on: January 10, 2010, 10:17:43 AM »

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?

The magnets would have to be UBER strong. We kind of have a different kind of hover board though, like the air powered ones. Someone brought one to my school once when i was in Jr. high and I got to ride it, lol.

I asked my science teacher about this once and he said it might be possible if we could cover the ground with magnets like the grid in the book. (Yeah, my science teacher thought I was really weird)

Bet we could have hover boards they're just too expensive or impractical for commercial use. We've had hover trains for years now so the technologies there.
