    This is a video of Tony Hawk and Dave Carnie demoing that real Hendo Hoverboard that's coming out. I still have beef with Tony Hawk though because he's one of the people responsible (including Doc Brown himself!) for that other hoverboard commercial that was so obviously fake ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Geekologie reader Ryan's Marty McFly and hoverboard costume from Halloween. Pretty clever, right? I wish I would have thought of that. I didn't though, so now Ryan is getting all the credit that SHOULD HAVE BEEN mine. What a jerk. Just kidding, Ryan, nic... / Continue →

    This is a video of a little pumpkin with a superconductor jammed up its keister levitating on a magnetic track. REAL TALK: I'd let a scientist jam a superconductor up my keister if they told me I'd be able to levitate on a magnetic track. Hell, I'd let them put one up there i... / Continue →

    This is a first-person video of some guy jetskiing through a water-filled canyon on Lake Powell. It looks wild, especially since the water is so calm and its reflection so clear that it looks like the jetski is hovering. Me? I would have crashed into a wall and drowned on th... / Continue →

    This is the Flying Carpet Coffee Table from Duffy London (of this swingset dining table fame). It costs £1,495 (~$2,460, spit-takes blood) and has a base that looks like the carpet's shadow to give it that hovering appearance. Just to be clear though, it doesn't actually hov... / Continue →

    This is a video from the University of Tokyo of scientists using four speakers to levitate and move objects in midair. Unfortunately, those objects are limited Styrofoam balls, water droplets, and other pieces of barely there. I want to see them levitate a human. Or implode ... / Continue →

    This is a table made out of 27 individual wooden blocks with magnets embedded in them. The magnets repel each other, and the blocks on the second and third levels all float. Don't worry though, they also have a series of guide wires running through them so that @$$hole friend... / Continue →

    Möbius strips: hands down my second favorite kind of strip behind stripteases. This is a video of Andy from The Royal Institution of Great Britain showing off a levitating superconductor riding a Möbius strip made out of 2,000 individual magnets. Whey the hell we can't have ... / Continue →
