Before there was the Lexus Hoverboard or even this Back to the Future commercial, last fall there was a company called Arx Pax that raised over $500,000 on Kickstarter to build a working hoverboard, the Hendo. This year's update, the Hendo 2.0, offers a smoother design and better controls while also pointing toward what a more accessible future of the industry could look like. Set to officially launch on October 21 - a date familiar to Back to the Future fans - the Hendo 2.0 improves on some of the complaints about its predecessor, looking more like a skateboard, stretching longer with kick tails, and building in skateboard trucks that hold the electromagnetic system. To make it even easier to ride, the company enlisted the help of Tony Hawk to consult on the project, helping to refine how to turn and control the board. Arx Pax also promises better charging, longer battery life, and USB connectivity in version 2.0 of the Hendo Hoverboard. So grab your Pepsi Perfect and your power-laced Nikes and mark your calendars for October 21.
