    Not sure if this is real or not. I looked into it and then watched the youtube video with Tony Hawk and Doc from Back to the Future endorsing this thing. It's supposed to be out this December. If it's a hoax it's a pretty elaborate one!!

    Yeah, upon further research, it most likely is. Still very elaborate and I wonder what it's an ad campaign for.

    Did you know that "gullible" isn't even in the dictionary?

    Oh, ye of little faith!

    Imagine, questioning the existence of an anti-gravity device.

    It's on the internet, isn't it!

    You probably even question those movies (such as Star Trek, which is a documentary, I believe) that include faster-than-light travel.





    and you probably think those people in the commercial really did know the Fogers wasn't real coffee...cynic!

    :rolleyes:

    I wouldn't be surprised if it were real because I'm not surprised by any new technological advancements anymore. As far as the average person is concerned, this is perfectly feasible. We take technological advancement for granted these days.

    I mean, do you honestly believe that something like this can never be created at some point in the future?

    Do you honestly believe that this question can be answered in the affirmative without asserting infinite knowledge?

    The point I was trying to make is that people are no longer shocked by technological advancements like they once were. "Taking for granted" may have been the wrong terminology. We appreciate and are amazed at new technology when we see it, but we are no longer shocked by it like people even 20 years ago were. We're ecstatic when things are finally invented, but we're not amazed that they're possible. We're lucky enough to live in a time where amazing technology is the norm and we've come to expect it. So I wouldn't really call it gullible for an average person to see this video and think that our technology may already be at this level.

    Do not believe it for now. I may not be around to see it, but maybe my children will?

    And if people were taught to think and to value education, the state of "the average person," as you put it, wouldn't be so depressing.

    What the hell does "thinking and valuing education" have to do with being temporarily fooled by a mock video of technology that can easily become reality in the upcoming decades? It's naive to think this is as far fetched as you think it is. You may not be asserting infinite knowledge, but you're certainly attempting to demonstrate intellectual superiority where it clearly doesn't exist.

    And I'm just confirming that it is a hoax. (sadly)

    There were other cues, besides the 'technology,' that suggested a hoax.

    We all get fooled once in a while; don't sweat it.
