Hoverboards have become a bit of a craze, and for good reason – we’ve been waiting on these things to be invented our whole lives. And while we do seem to be getting closer to the hoverboards of our dreams, we’re still not quite there. Well, the Hendo 2.0 is looking to be the first retail hoverboard on the market.

The technology firm Arx Pax (the same guys responsible for the Hendo prototype hoverboard on Kickstarter) is back in action, this time with a sleeker, lighter and quieter version of their original offering. They’ve teamed up with none other than skateboarding legend Tony Hawk for some help with the design, and decided to make the board a bit more narrow to lessen the learning curve to pilot one of these things. The board’s hover engines are incorporated into the trucks, improving traction, and features a slew of updates including USB connectivity, extended battery life, and even a wireless safety switch that will let users shut their board off remotely. The team plans on revealing the finalized product in the coming weeks, which technically means we could still getting a working retail hoverboard by the end of the year.
