Romanian breaks record for the longest hoverboard flight


Cbs website released in Oct 2015 an article about a Montreal resident that broke the record for the longest hoverboard flight.

The inventor Catalin Alexandru Duru  is actually a Romanian guy that owns Omni Hoverboards,  a company dedicated to creating and developing hoverboard technology and not only.

On their website it says that the company managed to “develop and manufacture futuristic fan-powered hoverboards. Our mark-1 prototype managed to travel a total distance of 275.9 m (905 ft and 2 inches) to achieve a new Guinness World Records title for the longest distance travelled by a hoverboard.”

Duru and his business partner hopes to develop new prototypes that will eventually be available for the public

Seems like Back to the Future, future is not that far away from us anymore, but the selling price of the device might not be in the affordable range, since the inventor said that the developing of such technology can be quite an expensive process.

Even it may seem like a fun way to travel, or should we say fly, the device might not be for everyone as handling it is not an easy job.

Of course the idea came from the well known movie Back to the future and it pushed Duru to leave his design and visual effects career and focus on something that we all want to see as a reality.
