This Incredible Hoverboard That Can Fly For 30 Minutes Might Be Available To The General Public By The End Of The Summer.

the future

For years, videos of the Omni Hoverboard have circulated on the Internet. Previous incarnations of these fully-functional and futuristic hoverboards could only fly for a few minutes at a time, but the videos were fantastic and fanned our desire for a future in which we might be drifting about town like Marty McFly.

Finally, the future has here. Actually, the future is just a few months away. According to a TMZ story, the Omni Hoverboards creators indicated that their newest type of hoverboard would be ready for purchase by the public as soon as the end of summer or anytime in the fall.

These genuine hoverboards won’t be cheap, but I don’t believe anybody ever expected them to be. In reality, the estimated price of roughly $27,000 is far lower than I had expected. As is the case with most genuinely amazing things in life, they generally enter the market at a price range that caters to the rich.

Here’s the recent clip that blew up on Twitter and an older clip that’s made the round on YouTube. The one on Twitter is actually *NOT* an Omni Hoverboard but the models that are expected to hit the market this Summer will be very similar.

The recent report on TMZ suggests there will be two models of the Omni Hoverboard available for purchase. The 8-propellor model has an expected price tag of $27,000 while the suped-up 10-propeller model will sell for around $36,000.

I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to convince my better half to let me fork over $36,000 for a hoverboard but I have to assume that price will go down over the years and by the time my toddler son is old enough to enjoy it with me we’ll be able to convince the old ball and chain that the only thing in life that could bring us true happiness is a hoverboard.

Here’s one of Omni Hoverboards earliest models setting a Guinness World Record back in 2015 for the longest flight, a record that’s all but certain to get smashed year after year once these things hit the market. It’s also amazing to see how far the technology has progressed in the past six years:
