A Guy Just Broke the World Record for the Farthest Flight on Hoverboard

Watch him in action and try to tell us that the future isn’t here.

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.
