    Before you have a heart attack over the undeniable excellence that would be a real live hovering Hover Board from Back to the Future: Part II, note that this one doesn’t QUITE float yet. Instead we get an assurance that this Hover Board does not work on water and that the price for this 1:1 replica will indeed be produced by Mattel and will be released in a “minimum orders required” fashion. This means that because the creation of this item is so costly to Mattel, they’re requiring that a minimum number of pre-orders be placed before they go into production.

    So since it doesn't really "hover" yet, a more appropriate name would just be "board"...

    Pretty cool though, although I don't see myself buying one. Not until it earns the title "Hoverboard", that is.
