A Hoverboard (or hover board) is a fictional hovering board used for personal transportation in the 1989 films ‘Back to the Future Part II’ and ‘Back to the Future Part III’. Hoverboards resemble a skateboard without wheels which fly.

A company named HUVr released a video featuring celebrities, including Tony Hawk, Moby, Terrelle Owens, Schoolboy Q, and Agnes Bruckner riding flying hoverboard which they named as HUVr Boards. One of the HUVr Boards is even modeled after the bright pink hover-board that Marty McFly rides around in the movie. One of the HUVr Boards is even modeled same as in the movie.
HUVr in their website says about their team that
“This is clearly a new frontier for science and we’re excited and honored to share this first chapter with the world.” —HUVr Team

Commercial: Back to the Future HUVR BOARDS
Viewers also noticed shadows of crane and harness used in the posted video.
Below are some stills captured from video which viewers posted in HUVr’s facebook page.
HUVr also claims that its team consists of “materials science, electricity & magnetism experts who’ve solved an important part of one of science’s mysteries: the key to antigravity.” But you should notice that NELSON CHENG is pursuing his career as an actor now, even though he was a tech person who worked in Google and Amazon as Product Manager.
The tagline in company website about their flying hoverboard is that the “Future Has Arrived,” but believe me. It’s not yet arrived. 😛
