    I know there is still 5 years to go until the deadline of having a hoverboard, but you'd think by now the technology would be out. Does anyone think that we will have hoverboards in 2015, not to mention clothes that will fit/dry by the touch of a button?

    One of the back to the future movies. They have to come out with a hoverboard or else the movie will be inaccurate!

    i read somewhere that one would never want to see a hovercraft because a bomb could be created that would make the atom bomb look like a firecracker. i know absolutly nothing about physics. so i cant explain why this is. just something i read somewhere that if you could reverse gravity you could create a big mofo bomb.

    Well that's only if hoverboards worked by reversing gravity... and you don't need to be a physics major to know that if you could turn off the force that keeps matter together that you could cause major destruction.

    I think the real problem is that we don't know magic.

    /Thread.

    Whilst I wish hoverboards would be more than just fantasy, the amount of chaos caused by people on them would be ridiculous. They skys would be filled with 14 year olds doing silly ollies and kickflips everywhere.

    More like the ground would be splattered with 13-17 year olds. Have you ever watched people skateboard? They fall like 50% of the time!

    I'm still waiting for sidewalks, driveways, and roads that melt snow and ice.

    Back in the early 60s at grade school we'd get to watch these newsreels put out by the atomic energy commission about the world of 1975 (aka the future). In 1975 (aka the future) the electricity generated by all the nuke plants would be so inexpensive and so plentiful that we would put coils in our walks and driveways and roads to melt the ice and snow in the winter.

    The good news is that on Thursday a hoverboard will be invented.
    The bad news is that on Friday the Sun will implode.

    I'd settle for the Nikes that self-lace right now.

    They'd save lots of time and seeing as though I'm really bad with tying my shoes, they'd be heaps useful :)

    Watching this movie makes me realize that culture and everything (what people say, how they dress, what's popular) gas changed heaps in 20 years..
