Doc Brown and Marty McFly would be so proud. Recently, Catalin Alexandru Duru set a new Guinness World Record for Farthest Journey by Hoverboard. Duru was riding a prototype that he himself created, attempting to set the mark by journeying over Quebec’s Lake Ouareau. Catalin had to travel 164 feet to make the achievement, as he did so easily, making it 905 feet and 2 inches.
Duru has dubbed his machine as the first real-life hoverboard — although Tony Hawk supposedly tried out the world’s first — as he claims the board can be used anywhere, although he generally tests it over water. It’s now 2015, weren’t we supposed to have these years ago?
