Let's go back to the future and remember the first time we saw a hoverboard. It was 2015, and Marty McFly was in downtown Hill Valley looking for a way to escape from Griff's gang
. In a panic, he "borrowed" a little girl's scooter which, with handle bars removed, became a "hoverboard" -- a flying stakeboard.
OK ... we weren't actually in Hill Valley, it wasn't really 2015 and Griff's gang was about as scary as backup dancers in an Adam Ant video.
