-- Admit it. Didn’t you always want Marty McFly’s gravity-defying hoverboard from “Back to the Future Part II”?
Well, today, the future may just be here.
Just in time for the 25th anniversary of the time travel classic film, Greg Henderson, a California inventor has launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring the Hendo Hoverboard from film to the real world.
“Thanks to Marty McFly, this is the perfect example of the stepping stone. ... We can't go over hedges or mobile sidewalks yet, but we'll get there,” Henderson told ABC News of his creation that will carry a $10,000 price tag.
The video falsely claimed that hoverboards had been around for years, and that parent groups would not allow toy manufacturers to make them. It added that the film’s creators got their hands on them and put them into the movie.
Kickstarter’s investors are ready to believe in McFly’s hoverboard being made today. As of Wednesday morning, Hendo Hover pulled in more than $200,000 of its $250,000 goal.
"We knew there was going to be a lot of interest, just Google hoverboards,” Henderson said, adding: “being able to make some dreams come true is really great."
For devoted "Back to the Future" fans who splurge and drop the $10,000 on a Hendo Hoverboard, the product will be delivered on - you guessed it - Oct. 21, 2015.
