I can't help but wonder what he THOUGHT it would do.
I'm guessing hover. Even if the thing couldn't take the weight of a person it could at least hover on a shelf. As it is it's just a useless skateboard with no trucks. Cripes, even if they had made it a skateboard with a hoverboard design it would at least be useable.
At the very least it could have made some kind of sound effect.
It's going to be able too hover. It won't be able to hold the weight of a person, but it will hover. It'll also makes sounds pulled directly from the film. It's crazy the things you can find on this interwebs thingamuhwhatsit if you take three seconds to look.
Probably the best/worst situation to turn into a sexual innuendo.
I can't argue the man's logic. Sounds like someone got taken for $150 to me.
Where we're going we don't need roads ... wait, my bad. I think we do need roads.
Note to Hoverboard Buyer: Just get a hover conversion.http://gizmodo.com/5887717/our-only-hope-for-a-bttf-hoverboard-that-actually-hoversAlso see: "Levitron." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Levitron"Do it yourself." Doc Brown always does.
It's the only ride he will get.
Some of these comments remind me of a Green Lantern ring the owner of my comic shop showed me a few years ago. It was inscribed on the inside, "Warning. Does not grant super powers."
I bought a replica of the OUTATIME license plate for $40. Ripoff? Maybe. But it looks wicked on my living room wall.
In 1990 I had a friend from two blocks over who told me his big brother's girlfriend's dad worked at a warehouse full of hoverboards, they were going to sell them at the toy store but they had to be recalled because they thought kids would hurt themselves on them.[not troll face.jpg]
