A hoverboard over water? It is yet another attempt to make the hoverboard dream a reality. Omni has flown farther than any other board, setting the record at 905ft and 2 inches. Watch as he takes the device to a lake where he puts the new prototype to the test for the first time. A reporter from CBC had the chance to see the initial launch first hand.
Duru, a software engineer, has devoted half of the decade to perfecting his hoverboard design that he calls Omni. His first attempt was literally a piece of wood strapped to an engine and propeller. The current version—refined by his new company, Omni Hoverboards, is made from carbon fiber but still has that DIY vibe: It achieves lift with eight large propellers, powered by 16 lithium-polymer batteries.
However, that was over 3 years ago now. What is Omni Hoverboards up to now? Now, the 31-year-old Duru and his company, Omni Hoverboards, are working on a secret, next-generation version. Just a hoverboard over water, or will it do much more? We will soon find out!
