Last month we got a first look at the Hendo Hoverboard, the world's first real hoverboard, created by a Los Gatos, California, startup whose Kickstarter page for the project is going strong. And who better to take a ride on the pioneering invention than a genuine skateboard pioneer, Tony Hawk, who's making up for a Funny or Die video from last March that had fooled viewers into believing the Back to the Future 2 hoverboard had arrived. The Hendo, on the other hand, is definitely real, though maneuvering a floating skateboard riding on an electromagnetic cushion is evidently not easy. Check out the video below.
