HUVrTech Hoverboard Hoax Revealed Posted about 6 years ago by Ian Easton - Posted in General

We all dreamt of having Marty McFly’s HUVr board in Back To The Future II. Well, here it is (or is it?).

The HUVr board was created from within the MIT Physics Graduate Program. Check out the HUVr website for more information. The company is saying that the video and product are completely real but there are now some clues to prove that it is all one big hoax and the result of a great deal of compositing! 

Slash/Gear has an article about the video, claiming that it is one big piece of genius viral marketing: 

HUVr: Back to the Future’s Hoverboard gets “real”

We all know that Back to the Future II took place in 2015. Is this a set up for the possible release of Back To The Future IV? 

It looks unlikely as Tony Hawk have posted a video revealing that the whole thing was a hoax. The video footage from the shoot also shows the actors using the original Back To The Future II harness. Cool!

As Tony Hawk says - we still need roads!
