Hoverboard and Anti-Gravity are finally here via HUVrTech [HOAX]
In 2010, a group of
MIT graduate students launched an ambitious project
resulting in an announcement on March 3 that the first application, a Hoverboard,
has arrived (Available by Dec. 2014). "Our team consists of materials science, electricity & magnetism experts who've solved an important part of one of science's mysteries: the key to antigravity."

A couple of years ago, on our Anti-Gravity
page at PESWiki, I posted an image of someone on a levitating skateboard with
caption: "SCIENTISTS, You Have 3 Years: The movie Back to the Future
had flying skateboards in the year 2015 (not to mention what the black-budget
secret ops have). So come on, all you counter-gravity inventors, let's pick up
Might this actually materialize?
Last night, I was given a link to a facebook
page with a video about the Hoverboard finally being here. As of this
morning, 6:45 am Mountain, that page has accumulated nearly 200,000 shares, 22,000
likes -- nearly ten times more shares than likes. People are passing this around
In case you've not already seen it, here's a copy of the video from
YouTube which has already received over 3.1 million views since being posted
March 3. It features the famous, now aged Christopher Lloyd from Back to the
Future (from nearly 30 years ago) driving up in his DeLorean, and giving kudos to
the group for pulling this off, above his expectations, as he appears to end up
with one of the prototypes.
As you glance through the comments, the overwhelming sentiment is
"FAKE!!!" Obviously, this isn't a claim that has deterred me before,
because I know that all major breakthroughs receive this kneejerk response at
first. However, at first exposure last night, I decided to not post something about this, given the level of
questions in my own mind about whether it is an actual campaign.
I sided with the commenters that it appears that the promotional footage -- at least part of it -- is
staged, not actual.
However, this morning, John Byde from the UK gave me a link to the official
It features the same video, but as you poke around on the few pages on the site,
it appears that this is not a hoax, but an actual endeavor out of MIT, with launch
date set as "December 2014". They have a Legal
Terms page which seems genuine. But the most convincing thing that shows
this is genuine is their About Us
The caption under the photo says it all:
What began as a summer project in 2010 at the MIT Physics Graduate Program has evolved into one of the most exciting independent products to be developed out of MIT since the high-powered lithium-ion batteries developed by Yet-Ming Chiang in 2001.
Our team consists of materials science, electricity & magnetism experts who've solved an important part of one of science's mysteries: the key to antigravity.
The HUVr Board team ultimately aims to improve the efficiency, speed and sustainability of mass transportation. Yet rather than spend several more years closed off from the world while investing in research and development, the team and our world-class investors have worked to change the economics R&D by marketing this exciting consumer product in order to fund ongoing R&D.
So, they're introducing their technology via a toy -- a skateboard -- to
finance the more sophisticated and important applications.
The description in their video states simply:
They're here. http://huvrtech.com
And at time stamp 0:56, the text states (emphasis added):
In February, 2014 HUVR Tech hosted an event in downtown Los Angeles. The
following demonstrations are completely real.
So if that intro video is "fake", then these guys are fraudsters
begging for criminal charges with statements like this.
A second video, labeled "How", just over 1 minute long, says
"This board has more technology in it than the satellites we sent up in
Note that in addition to their charger, they even have an Operating Guide
Counteracting your expectations about this being potentially one the most
dangerous products conceivable, they say, "we want this to be the safest
product on the market," with its auto-correction features, way beyond the
But not just safe. Simple. "Open the box, thirty minutes later, you're good
Billy Zane, concludes: "Dude, I can't believe you actually did this."
If this is indeed for real, this will be so liberating.
Imagine when they can hook one of these hoverboards to an adequate exotic free
energy power source, e.g. in a backpack (or then-fashionable fanny pack!), so you never have to stop to recharge. You can go almost
anywhere. That's freedom!
A better world awaits us.
That said, I would guess that without such a portable, exotic free energy
technology to launch with this hoverboard, it is likely to be met with customer
disappointment in the shortness of duration of run-time on one charge.
My only sadness here is that this comes from a mainstream institution, and not
from the fringe. We shouldn't be too surprised. We know that the mainstream
isn't entirely disfunctional and corrupt. Disruptive technologies for the masses
can originate there as well.
HOAX: I totally fell for it

Hello Sterling D. Allan,
The news about the hover board appears to be fake.
I just emailed the physics department at MIT and the reply was that it is not real:

It's a hoax. One blogger who exposes it can be found here:

That is too bad. I don't know why anyone would want to fake a hover board, maybe to get people to work on making one. Anyways just letting you know.

You can see from http://nelsoncheng.com/acting
that the guy portrayed in the HUVr videos as an MIT scientist is actually Nelson
Cheng, an actor.
Here are some observations:

I Think I have Solved the hoverboard Illusion ?
First I know that wires that hold up an actor can be digitally removed after a scene is shot.
So look at 3:30 to 3:36 time in the video and see part of a large out of place piece of heavy equipment and it's large tire on the right side of the screen, Probably the crane that held up the actors on a wire ?
Second look at 3:00 to 3:06 and see the board floated between two actors with a bottle of water on it, Notice how it curves up as is swings to the right at the very end of it's travel like it is on a pendulum ark hanging on a wire ?
Then look at 4:16 to 4:25 the girl sitting on the hoverboard feet off the ground swinging back and forth on an ark and like sideways on a swing ?
All point out that they were supported on a wire, Also most other shots by the non experts were very short covering up the ark that would have been seen.
There is also something fishy about how the hoverboard is out of camera view for a split second when it is dropped and then stops just before hitting the ground, Also many of the video shots are in slow motion covering up something ?
The one high swing at 4:25 to the right over a wooden ramp also shows the right hand half of an ark shaped swing a smaller swing is
visible at 4:16
The crane wheel in the video also has it's extra balance arm swung out and activated so it is lifting it's own wheel / probably all 4 wheels off the ground the way these things get better balance and stability when being used !
They Are BUSTED !!! (;^))
My question is why Christopher
Lloyd -- that is him shown in the video -- would prostitute himself like
this for some silly viral marketing campaign based on a bogus pitch. I, for one,
don't think it's funny. [Update. Here is a video
of Lloyd's rebuttal.]
Ditto for Billy
Zane. Whatever it is that this is pitching had better be really good, or
this is going to backfire with the letdown that doesn't at all match the
expectations this promo raises.
Maybe the emergence of an actual exotic technology could fill in for these
scammers who think it's funny to make fun of people's hopes for a hoverboard. If
things were not up-side-down in the world, that is what MIT would be producing
-- not fraudulently, with a conflict of interest, blackballing cold fusion, like
they did back in the days of Martin Fleishmann's announcement.
