Ever since I saw “Back to the Future”, I’v always wanted a hoverboard like Marty McFly. Here we are in 2016, and it looks like hoverboards may actually be a reality – or are they?

Just check this video from Zapata Racing…

According to the Huffington Post, The company claims Flyboard Air can reach an altitude of 10,000 feet — more than three times the height of the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world — hit speeds of 93.2 mph, and fly for about 10 minutes at a time.

However, In the test shown on video, however, the device flew at 35 mph for just under 4 minutes and at altitudes far below 10,000 feet, says the article.

But is it real? A lot of skeptics on Facebook and Youtube claim to see wires in some of the shots. We’re not sure if it’s real or not – it sure looks like it to us.

If it is real, the Flyboard Air would be a major advancement in what other companies are trying to do with this type of technology. I’d love to test the Flyboard Air myself, but I’m still waiting on my flying car!
