Hoverboards are like flying cars and robot butlers, they are symbols telling us that the future is here.
Up till recently, real hoverboards only hover a few centimetres above the ground are require a metal surface to work the hoverboard's magnets - that means not like those gravity defying skateboards seen in countless sci-fi movies.
Now, a man had traveled on a hoverboard across a lake for 275.9 metres, breaking the previous world record by over five times!
But can this propeller-based hoverboard achievement open the floodgates for hoverboard innovation? Only time will tell.
You can go behind the science of this record breaking hoverboard here.
BEHIND THE SCiENcE is a series about facts of the world worth knowing, worth sharing.
