Frankensteins Monster | A4 | Graphite on Paper

When I looked around I saw none and heard of none like me.

Was I, then, a monster, a blot upon the earth

from which all men fled and whom all men disowned?

Hoverboard hits Kickstarter.

The Hendo hoverboard uses ‘Magnetic Field Architecture’ to hover about 1 inch above the ground, although it has to be over a very secific type of metal surface. The Kickstarter is offering a developer kit of a ‘hover engine set and enough surface to hover it on’ for US$299. The actual hoverboard was $10,000 but all ten are already sold out.

The company has also been busy with designs for a ‘hoverpark’ to use the board on:

Although a real life hoverboard is cool, it seems the company mainly sees it as a first demonstration of a technology which could have much wider application:

The Hendo Hoverboard is a first-step product, a precursor to the broader implementation of the world-changing technology of MFA.  It enables a new generation of lift and motion technology that will change the way we view transportation. Additional applications for MFA technology are virtually limitless - from business, to industry, to healthcare, and beyond.

Unlike magnetic levitation systems employed today, our hover systems are comparably inexpensive and completely sustainable. Hovering modes of transportation are now possible and practical. Lifting a wide range of loads - whether it’s a person riding a hoverboard (what we were all expecting) or a building riding out an earthquake (what we never imagined could be possible) - is all within reach.
