We don’t really need to reminisce about how we yearned for the day when we would get to ride our very own Hoverboards from Back to The Future Part II. It’s suffice to say we all wanted one. Well, 80′s enthusiasts… have we got significantly awesome news for you, because the fictional floating board of your dreams is here! Doing the seemingly impossible, YouTuber dondula7 has recreated nerdy of the most extreme order. A real life floating hoverboard that actually works. Well, sorta. Here’s the catch you can’t stand on it (bummer).

The hoverboard “uses a two pairs of electromagnets to float the hoverboard in the air, and laser stabilization to keep it steady.” Although the board does not support the weight of a human, it is strong enough to float up to five pounds.

Sadly we’re not any closer to a floating board that will scoot us to the cafe 80′s, but this is a step in the right direction.
