The word "hoverboard" gets thrown around a lot, but it's typically in reference to a skateboard- or unicycle-like device. However, the world's first real hoverboard may actually be here. The ArcaBoard by the company ARCA SPACE is a hoverboard that truly hovers about one foot above the ground, not using magnetic power. The board generates lift with 36 high-power electric ducted fans, which create up to 272 horsepower and 430 lb (1913 N) of thrust.
