Ah yes…Back to the Future Day…a day which has been butchered by idiots on the internet since 2012. Hoaxes have circulated social media almost monthly with images taken from the 1989 film Back to the Future Part II to make it appear as if the current date matches the future date visited by Marty McFly in that movie via his time-traveling DeLorean automobile. Each any every time this date is completely wrong people…each and every stinkin time, but today, you’re now only 365 days away!
Thanks to the countdown clock you can now never lose track of that faithful day and you can stop being fooled by the fools who fooled you all too many times before!
But this is not the only great Back to the Future news we have to bring you today!
As we quickly approach 2015, the REAL future year that Marty arrived in the film, news comes from Hendo Hoverboards whose Kickstarter campaign leads us to believe that Hoverboards, real floating Hoverboards could be here sooner than you think. The company based in Los Gatos, California, is seeking $250,000 from its Kickstarter campaign to finally make these bad boys a reality. Exciting news no?! But wait, there’s more! For you rich folk that have disposable income, if you donate $10,000 to the cause, you’ll receive one of the first 10 hoverboards the company makes. You lucky sons a guns! But you better hurry cause the company says 6 of the first 10 are already claimed!
You can watch the promotional video above to check out just how this amazing concept is possible, and yes, they have a working prototype of the board. So far it only sways from side to side, a far cry from Griff’s Pit Bull Board, but it’s a great start!
So far Hendo has currently received just over $78,000 worth of pledges towards their $250,000 goal, with 54 days remaining in the Kickstarter campaign.
