Perhaps encouraged by Nike's recent released of a limited-edition shoe line based on the self-lacing future shoes from Back to the Future Part II, Mattel has announced plans to potentially release a hover board this Christmas. Says the toy manufacturer, "This totally awesome 1:1 replica of the hover board from the BTTF 2 and BTTF 3 films includes multiple whooshing sounds and will glide over most surfaces," though it won't actually, y'know, hover. ("Check back in 2015 for that feature," the product description adds.) The manufacturer will take orders for the item this March, and provided that its production minimums are met, you'll get your non-hovering hover board this Christmas. Now, who can get to making some giant hologram sharks?
