Skateboarding is fun. What if, skateboarding went airborne, won’t that just be amazing? Well, a startup named Hendo is working towards just that. Soon, you could be the proud owner of the first real and commercially marketed hoverboard that will float about an inch off the ground using magnetics.

The engineering team of Hendo has been working hard on the hoverboard for quite some time and this is their eighteenth prototype. They continue to make advances in its design week after week. The enabling technologies for the product have existed for a longtime but no one made any efforts to align them until Hendo took the task at hand. The Hoverboard works in whatever way you could ever imagine but it still requires a little more resources and time to become perfect to the T.

The hoverboard has four disc-shaped hover engines and this is where all the magic lies. These engines are responsible for inducing an opposite magnetic field in the surface substrate below that provides lift and levitates the board off the ground.

The board has been designed to be self-propelled, however, the actions which stabilize the board can be used to drive it forward by altering the projected force on the surface underneath it. The surface substrate currently needs to be a non-ferromagnetic conductor in order for the hoverboard to function properly. Hendo is currently making use of commonly available metals in simple sheets, but it is simultaneously working on new configurations and new compounds so that it can minimize the costs and maximize the technology involved.

The hoverboard comes power packed with a lot of features to provide you with one of the best experiences in your lives. Its high performance, sleek and modern design gives way for a supercharged performance. It provides effortless glide which is smoother than any ride on the wheels. Safety is of prime importance and keeping that in mind, the hoverboard has numerous integrated safeguards, from automatic power down to an interference-free ride surface.

Since the current technology of the hoverboard requires special types of surfaces to function, Hendo, therefore, is currently also in the midst of designing a hoverpark to go with their hoverboards.

"This is not the end, this is just the beginning of where this technology can go", said Greg Henderson, founder, Hendo and the man behind hoverboard.
