It barely floats and you need to be on that specific park to ride it, the arka board is much better and is actually for sale!

Lightweight metal
Surf board size
High power small fan around the board
Height/distance tracking camera

High powers battery / or solar panel above the board

i feel persons can use magnets because look at this if u use a magnet and just rebuild parts of the road it probably would hover but the balance i will have to figure out when im older

And the arcaboard? It flies in any surface and you can use like a skate or just use it pushing it to front or back

Arnold Corriette says:

Lexus is the best they created a hoverboard cool one day am going to buy one

HornyHotdog says:

Make the magnets slightly stronger and make something that detects if the hoverboard gets to hot and then automatically cools down the hoverboard.

Marcus Rosales says:

This is how magnetic trains are supposed to work. We need those high Temperature superconductors!
