    That's a little bit of an exaggeration, but is technically true.

    Maybe now we can finally get the hoverboards from Back to the Future 2. I've always wanted one of those.

    Looks fake to me...

    First part of the video looks like some wires holding the plastic "carpet" & a kind of a small air hockey table under it
    second part of the video you can see a transparent base with holes in it so again looks like the "carpet" being push by air only...?

    No wonder why there is no sound in the video otherwise you would hear the sound of air pushing it...
