Yet another item that NASA and OBAMA have failed to deliver...Our collective hoverboard fantasy was sparked in 1989 by Robert Zemeckis. In Back to the Future, Part II, Michael J. Fox’s Marty McFly hops a Mattel-brand gizmo that looks like a pink skateboard deck without wheels. Floating inches above the ground, he zips over sidewalks, roads, a wooden bridge, and a car before his ride peters out over water. (Everyone knows hoverboards don’t work on water.)The movie was set in the year 2015, giving Mattel just three more years to make kids’ dreams come true on schedule. Almost 150,000 people have liked the Facebook page “It’s 2010, where the hell is my hoverboard?” http://www.slate.com/articles/technology/future_tense/2012/1...
