My Real Hovering Hoverboard

Here is my near completed Hoverboard display that I started working on over a year ago and just finally got around to get working right.  The board actually uses magnets to achieve levitation just like in the Back to the Future movies. My inspiration came from an instillation piece I saw a couple years ago by an artist named Nils Guadagnin who was able to achieve the same effect. I used an electromagnetic kit that has a laser stabilization technology in it to get the magnets to hover in place.

Almost every high school math class requires you to purchase one of these expensive graphing devices, that you will probably only use for only a couple of years. It would be nice to get more use out of a device that costs roughly the same amount as a handheld gaming system. What a lot of people don’t know is that there are many more ways to use one of these powerful devices, aside from them helping you fail geometry.
