A year ahead of schedule (as laid down in Back to the Future II) humanity finally seems to be making the progress we were promised and Hoverboards are on the horizon. This video from little known tech and skating brand HUVr dropped this edit last night which shows their latest release.

The guys at HUVr have roped in a slew of stars to announce the launch including the original Doc, Christopher Lloyd, Moby and Tony Hawk. For some reason it even has actor Billy Zane explaining the science behind the incredible new board.

The company describes it as something that began as an MIT project in 2010 aiming to improve mass transportation. The guys claim the board will be available to the public in December in silver and 80s pink.

With Nike announcing that Marty McFly's power laces will soon be in our hands too the future looks bright. Right?
