COOL | A hoverboard that can fly! Looks like anyone can fly on their own in the near future!

Some of us dreamed of learning how to fly when we were young. No, I'm not just talking about the aspiration to maneuver an airplane (although that's big a dream enough), but literally flying as a substitute mode of movement for walking! With this, the possibilities of finding shortcuts to get to your place and finding new angles of your landscapes are pretty endless!


Canadian inventor Catalin Alexandru Duru just brought this dream one step closer to reality as he has successfully launched his own flying hoverboard through his company Omni Hoverboards. The 31-year-old Romanian-born inventor took the Guinness World Record for making the longest and furthest hoverboard flight in history.

Through his invention, he was able to fly 16 feet up in the air at a distance of 275.9 meters over Lake Ouareau in Quebec, Canada.

In an interview with CBC News, he said, “I saw how technology was evolving, and I was thinking ’This is actually possible,' So I thought, ’Why not?'”

Check out this cool flying hoverboard and its pilot Duru in the video below.

  1. This is awesome, obviously, but I don't think there's any way something like this would be released for the average consumer to buy. You can smell the lawsuits just looking at it.

  2. Everyone knows that skateboards have wheels and they might have guessed that hover boards will not need wheels; or will they? If you can build a hover board with wheels then that will make it easier for landing, but it will not make it very aerodynamic and it also adds weight. If something is to fly it is important that it is as light as possible. buy affordable hoverboards
