Tech & Toys: ThinkGeek's Working ‘Back to the Future 2′ Hoverboard

Those moments we loved dearly from classic cinema never seem to leave us too far behind. It may not be completely practical, but it’s the next best thing until they develop a full-sized replica, says ThinkGeek of their mini hoverboard. So I’m perfectly cool with this one for now. The kid in me just needs to be. 

The desktop toy, modeled after Marty McFly’s own levitating transportation device from Back to the Future 2, is only an inch-and-a-half long and comes with its own track, which is powered by 5 high-grade rare earth magnets. The track, clocking in at only 4″ long itself, boasts a small bend so that the board can be put in and stay in motion with a small flick. I don’t know about you, but I’m buying one of these. Might get two just in case one breaks. Need a backup.
