Hoverboard is here to stay

Do you guys remember the hoverboard from "Back to The Future"... the one that Marty McFly used to escape the gangs during a chase? guess what.. an artist from France just created it... i know.. cool right...

HOVERBOARD - NILS GUADAGNIN from nils guadagnin on Vimeo.

"The Hoverboard is a project made by Nils guadagnin, a young french artist. This work is born in 2008 for an exhibition named "Back To the future".

It is a copy of the hoverboard from the movie Back to the Future II. Integrated into the board and the plinth is an electromagnetic system which levitates the board. A laser system stabilises the object in the air.
In the making of this work, this artist was thinking about different ways of presenting sculpture. In fact it's a reflexion on the multiple possibilities of how to give a sculpture full spatial autonomy."

wouldn't it bee really cool to go to classes with this thing.. hahaha
