Canadian inventor Catalin Alexandru Duru just set the Guinness World Record for farthest flight ever on a hoverboard. Duru, who designed the hoverboard himself over the course of a year, managed to get up 16 feet in the air, and then traveled a total distance of 905 feet and 2 inches. “I wanted to showcase that a stable flight can be achieved on a hoverboard and a human could stand and control with their feet,” the inventor stated. This comes on the heels of two men soaring above Dubai on jetpacks. Finally, hope for a future filled with more practical transportation options.
Watch him in action and try to tell us that the future isn’t here.
