Is This The Closest We'll Ever Get To Seeing A Back To The Future Hoverboard Fly?

Everyone wants a hoverboard. Everyone. Don’t even try to disagree. But while you can buy a lame-o, non-working Back to the Future-style ‘board, it’s just not the real thing. Crazy optimists can hold out hope for 2015, but in the meantime, this clever little picture by François Dourlen is probably the best we can do.

Part of a larger series utilising the tried-and-true life-plus-a-picture trick, here we see a futuristic skater who is truly living the dream. You can check out the rest of François Dourlen’s pictures on his site. Or you can stare off into space and daydream about hoverboards. I’m going with option number two.
