2015 saw numerous companies claiming they’ve created the hoverboard, the floating skateboard originally made famous by Back to the Future Pt. 2. Lexus designed one that could only work on a special magnetic track, and Arx Pax debuted their second iteration of the Hendo Hoverboard. Now, the newest entrant into the hoverboard space is the ArcaSpace.
Although it doesn’t look like your typical hoverboard concept, its design seems to work, allowing riders to float off of the ground for up to six minutes. It uses 36 electric fans pushing 272 horsepower with 430 pounds of thrust to keep the rider suspended in the air, up to a foot off of the ground. It’s a crude design that’s big and bulky, but it works (even if only for a few minutes at a time and is nothing like Marty McFly’s iconic ride). But don’t expect to ride on it anytime soon, being that it comes in at a $19,900 price tag. Check out the video below. [Purchase]
