Watch this Amazing Real-Life Hoverboard Flight (video)

The future is now!

Guinness World Records recently added an amazing new feat to its list of accomplishments. Canadian inventor Catalin Alexandru Duru’s propeller-based hoverboard managed to travel a total distance of 275.9 m (905 ft 2 in) to achieve a new Guinness World Records title for Farthest flight by a hoverboard.

Catalin needed to achieve a distance of more than 50m to set a Guinness World Records title, but smashed this by traveling over five times the required target, reaching a height of 5 metres on his prototype hoverboard. A Guinness World Records spokesperson is quoted as saying: “This is a truly mesmerising and incredible feat in the world of engineering and transportation“. <source>

  1. That is amazing. One would truly have to have a very good sense of balance, so that would leave me out.
