Arx Pax and their Hendo Hoverboard technology are heading for space. After attracting much attention Arx Pax this month announced their partnership with NASA, a partnership to take their magnetic technology to space. Sadly NASA isn’t interested in seeing astronauts zipping about on hoverboards but instead they will be creating a tractor beam system to move around micro satellites.
As a mechanism to generate publicity the Hendo Hoverboard was extremely successful, as a hoverboard not so much. This was due to the requirement of the ground being covered in specific metals for the board to hover everywhere. Like the Lexus Slide hovering cannot be achieved on just any surface such as that covering the real world. Luckily satellites are already covered in the required metals making the magnetic magic work just fine.

Dreams can and do come true, before our very eyes science fiction is turning to fact one idea at a time. Levitating transportation is one such dream that has recently taken another step towards becoming an everyday reality, all thanks to the Henderson’s. American company Hendo Hover (Jill and Greg Henderson) and their Hover Engine present electromagnetic lift and propulsion in action, this is the Hoverboard, and this time it’s REAL.
As a technology demonstration platform the Hoverboard was an excellent choice up until Funny or Die pulled their HuvrBoard prank on the world. Tony Hawk is still shaking his head in disbelief that people believed the Funny or Die prank was real, now as you will see below the half pipe legend has teamed up with Hendo to present the REAL hoverboard, reparations anyone.
