A Canadian Hoverboards Across Lake & Makes World Record 1

Catalin Alexandru Duru, a Canadian inventor just managed to use his invention, the first real-life hoverboard, to cross by hovering across over 300 Meters (1000 feet) the Quebec lake. He invented a hoverboard which he claims that it can be used anywhere (on any terrain). His device seems to be inspired by the gadget called Hoverboard present in the Sci-Fi movie named ‘Back to the Future’ franchise. The world record was made in the presence of the crew from the Guinness Book of World Records there to confirm the “Farthest Flight by Hoverboard”.

Duru just had to fly a distance of 48.7 Meters (160 feet) to qualify for the record but that was apparently just a starting point of the flight for Duru. He kept flying for more 275 Meters (905 feet and 2 inches) before touching the water surface and sink.

“The prototype can be used anywhere,” Duru explains. “But is usually tested over water because of how dangerously high it can fly.

Put your money back in the wallet as this is just a prototype and has no date for official release in the market. It isn’t even confirm that if the product will ever make it to the market for interested folks to buy.
