Thirty years ago, the movie Back to the Future Part II predicted that by October 21, 2015, we would be getting around on hover boards. Well, here we are, and while we now have Segways and the technology for self-driving cars, there are still no hover boards in children's closets.
Miami University's 2014 Kinetics Festival featured something close. Students created a saucer-shaped hovercraft that could hold up to 250 pounds. WVXU's Tana Weingartner spoke with Tim Cameron, Miami University professor and chair of mechanical and manufacturing engineering, about when we might actually see real hover boards.
