Are you a victim of heavy traffic jams and always dreamt of a hoverboard that can come to your rescue? Just the way it was shown in 1989’s movie “Back to the Future Part II”, where Marty McFly invented these. HUVr’s website showcases hoverboards that lifts you up the ground and work on antigravity fundamental.
Are these real? No for sure. Isn’t it too good to be true? We haven’t reached that future yet that they describe in their video that went viral. Company calls it their fund raising campaign. It triggered adrenaline rush for those who are sick of traffic jams and those excited school kids. Who wouldn’t want to fly? This video features Tony Hawk, Moby and Terrell Owens. Whatever it is viral marketing or anything else it did attract everybody’s attention.
Here is what TechCrunch wrote:
“If you’re looking for a well-crafted but ultimately very fake video about hoverboard technology featuring Moby, Terrell Owens, Tony Hawk and Dr. Emmett Brown himself, today is your lucky day. The video above is exactly what I’ve described, featuring a weird cast of cameos and what appears to be a fake tech team powering everything, plus a soundtrack with Chromeo and Best Coast. Also there’s a Mark Cuban endorsement to complete the strange assembly.
The tagline is that the “Future Has Arrived,” when in fact it hasn’t. Aside from being a clear (though still technically impressive) fake, the website for this demo and fake company also shows a counter with December 2014 as the projected “destination time” for whatever’s going on here. That could just be part of the artificial HUVr product dressing, but it could also be when whatever’s being promoted here breaks cover.”
This is what International Business Times has to say:
“It seems pretty real until you dive into the legal section of HUVr’s website, which says, “the inclusion of any products or services on this website at a particular time does not imply or warrant that these products or services will be available at any time.”
There are also clues in the video that it’s a hoax. At 2:10, it is clear that wires attached to a harness are the real cause of Terrelle Owens lifting into the air.
HUVr’s website says that the HUVr Board demonstration is a marketing scheme to attract investors, saying that the team and investors are “marketing this exciting consumer product in order to fund ongoing R&D.”
Even though HUVr Boards likely aren’t on their way anytime soon, HUVr could be developing some very exciting technology. This YouTube video certainly got the Internet talking about them”.
Website like Gizmodo also confirms the same.
