Not sure if I should believe my eyes or not? I’d like to try that myself.
How did it after removing of launchpad.
where can i find the loop antena
how did you make the board
@matthew – The video explains it all!
how were you able to determined N and S poles? and how long did it take for it to start hovering?
That is cool, I’m going to make one!!! I wonder if you can do that to a real skateboard? 😀
what do mean by n and s magnets
Make a couple and I promis to buy
Is this possible or not?! I tried with some magnets I had lying around the house, don’t know if they were neodymium but got no levitation out of it. Please I would like to know if this is fake or not.
This is not real. It is possible to levitate magnets with other magnets, see the Levitron top. The reason the Levitron works is because the top is a magnet and spinning it provides stability. There is nothing here to provide stability and the antenna would do absolutely nothing.
For those who are wondering how to get the neodymium magnets. Neodymium magnets are the type of magnets that are contained in a computer’s hard drive. So, these are easy to obtain.
I’m only 14, yet I do have a semi-thorough understanding of basic quantum mechanics 🙂
If I am correct, this setup should create a transverse electromagnetic wave whose oscillations are perpendicular to the direction of propagation (energy transfer). These waves should be strong enough repel against the opposing changes of the magnetic fields of both the north and south facing neodymium magnets in order to provide lift for the board and keep it stable. Therefore, I can deem this theoretically possible and I will make an attempt to duplicate it. The only thing I’m wondering about is how the board stays airborne after the “Launchpad” is removed… Maybe something related to ratio of the wavelength to the size of the diffracting object? kinematic theory of diffraction?
Master DC. Amazing!
How about that teleport video that comes up after yours., Fake?
were do you get the loop antena and where do you get those side stickers
This is amazing! But i have a few questions. How much weight does this support? And is it possible to reproduce this on a larger scale?
fake. how can this be possible
cool video though
Is it thrut Everything here? or it is videotriki???Who unswer ?
it is real.
to Know which is n and s you think.
n atracts to s but not n
s atracts to n but not s.
it dose not mater if n and s are in difrent spots.
this works because n repels n away from it.
What is the board made of?
Can you produce a list of things needed to create? Are all the magnets the same size, and how wide and thick are they? A list really is needed, thanks Chris
Has sombody tried? I just really want to now if this works
Can humans stand on it if it was large enough? Can you push it around or does it have to stay in the same place?
The idea seems plausible. Electromagnetics makes it so. Electricity and magnetic forces interact perpendicularly to each other, hence the launch pad. However I’d like dc to explain why the hoverboard remained after the launchpad was removed. Please and thank you
hi i asked a magnet maker to make me two 6/1/4 ” x 20mm magnets as two big magnets that i could have continually ionized, to have electromagnetic anti gravity, the engineer said it wouldnt work, they’re all in on this not to be used by anyone but the military. anyway it would work on a larger scale with a self contained battery pack as an attached launpad style power supply – batteries, magnets copper, power switch, launch gear, there is a guy that made one and exhibited it france, he didnt show it moving along above ground but displayed up on a platform.
I find this hard to believe, I can see no evidence of wires but I would like to know what is hidden under under the charcoal black material. It wouldn’t happen to be a block of copper sitting in a bath of liquid nitrogen would it. I’m not saying this is impossible, because I believe anything is possible given the right conditions doing is believing video’s frequently lie!
Excuse me, but what are the sizes (measurements, specifications) of the magnets? Thanks in forward.
It can´t work after strings and magnets are removed unless there are something under the table
How much where the magnit
Someone explain to me, how this works
its very important
Where do i get the magnets?
first he achieves levitation cause of the battery, because if you connect a battery to a metalic object it turn on a electro magnetic field.!
THAT WAS EASY!!! 😉
I know this works and is real. I’m in the process of making a PROPER hoverboard myself and i am only 12. Me and my friend (12 also) are working on one that has more features like electronic stablization, turning and MORE! The board will be like the new iPhone- Every is buying one. Look for names either C.W. or H.B. 🙂
P.S. Also u helped me DestinationCreation with an idea. Thx
I saw something like this on an episode of Star Trek The Next Generation called Contagen.
hey I was wondering if I could get a list or something because I really want to make one or a few and I don’t know where to get the magnets or what they really are even though it says it I just don’t know what sixe they are
ich glaube dieses viedeo schon aber ich habes versucht hat nicht geklappt welche Neodym-Magneten muss man da nehmen?
where do i get the decals
what is the white board
it is awesome and so cool
I tried for it but first I failed but then I was able to make it its real
where do i get the magnets
What is the use of a loop antenna? Connections of the launch pad were not so clear. can you explain them again? Where to get the loop antenna?
What did you mean by adjust and balance? How to adjust and balance?
can you make a bigger one and send it to me
after the launching nothings perfectly belevable
Is loop antenna required for sure of would a straight antenna work?
What is the material of the board, it’s not wood but like a foam kind could someone please give me the name for my school project
Someone sent this to me and asked what I thought…and for all the builder hopefuls on here a couple notes; First, in reviewing all the comments, no one has taken into consideration the earths own magnetic field and influence separate from all the devices that are removed – essentially functions like a much bigger antenna surrounding the whole system. Second, if you’re trying to scale up, take into consideration the size of the antenna relative to the board and what its function is (consult a second year college engineering physics book). Third – you do not have to buy a loop antenna,it is just some metal wire surrounded by plastic, would be stronger if you made your own without plastic and different gauge/metal. Fourth – Scale up requires larger electrical energy supply and understanding of the physics of each component – gain that understanding and build a board you can ride around the living room. Good luck.
I have built two of these myself. I used a very light balsa wood structure to build it, it works fine except that somehow they only last about 1/2 an hour, then they have to be polarized again. I do not understand why!
What size and strength magnets should I use?
Banana – Would you please tell me how you connected the battery, magnet and loop antenna? Thanks in advance!
What do you use for the actual board?
What is the loop antenna for?? Short circuit?? Can i also use a lamp or something like this so there is no short circuit?
What is board made out of
What are the materials for the hoverboard
What are the materials for the hoverboard.
What are the materials for the hover board
hows the board made
It is possible in fact. There is the bullet train in Japan that is the exact same concept… but with a train. This proving that it can be mad to a larger scale and ca possibly be the future of hover boards.
i am going to try that myself with my friend at shcool
i believe this and does it have to be just neodymium magnets? ive got the loop antenna and the coathanger ready but not the magnets yet.
i believe that next year their will be a prototype ready but first we need to know how to move the board instead of just staying in one spot spinning. any ideas? im only 16 years old
the things we need to focus on is
1) is anyone going to build a bigger one.
2) how can we make it shift forward only.
I am currently working on a larger one. The hoverboard is probably made out of foam board.
were do you get the decals
I’m trying to make it but I can’t get it to float. What am I doing wrong?
Please let me konw how get i magnetic RF launch pad and what is it bottom of basement ? is it ironable or normal floor ?
Thanks in advance for your assist
How are the loop antenna and metal hanger connected? Do you have to strip the coating off the wire?
Alright, I bought a delorean toy car and I will put the magnets inside it, will it still work? And if it does, what is the use of the loop antenna?
I can’t make this work, is there a specific connection needed between the hanger and the antenna?
What is that green and pink thing you out into the baord? Is it necessary to use that?
will you sell me a working setup?
I found the decals simply by googling “BTTF2 Hoverboard decals” which let me to a forums page and a link to a PDF file I downloaded the file and whala had it.
(Need to get ink for my printer then print them out.)
For the board material I am using foam poster board.
You’ll need an exacto knife to cut it out, just cut out the decals then use the scrap paper to trace the outline on the board.
I bought the neodymium or earth magnets at a craft store, you’ll need 8 and they are .5 inches x 12.7 mm. How the video shows to place them N “North” and S “South” you can figure out that by being aware that, “opposites attract” (in the magnetic world). YouTube has videos to help you out.
For the loop antenna, I had one on an old stereo system, but they can be found at hobby shops, or you can follow youtube videos on how to make your own.
The battery is a AA.
I will post as I test it out, have fun!
Thanks for all the descriptions, they’ll be put to good use in my next school project.
i made it just with a skateboard THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!:D
This really shows that there are still individuals that value what they submit on the web. I truly loved reading the comments.
i want to ask that is this hoverboard also work on every type of floor
Can someone tell me how this floats? Is the board repelling another magnet on the table in order for it to stay in the air?
what is a loop antenna
from where can we get loop antenna
how much would all the materiels cost and what kind of magnet would i use (?:
how would i get the print of the design.
Please tell your viewers what it is made of and they just might give you 1000000000$.
And I recommend you giving a link to your YouTube video on how to make it please?
Please tell us how much it cost please
And how to make loop antena
What type of board are you using
What is the actual board made out of Styrofoam? we would like to make one of these in our local science fair
sir what is that magnetic RF launchpad …how i can make that at home
Can anyone tell me how to connect the antenna to the hanger and what is the hanger made up of ,I mean what metal?
Hey can i make the same thing with a large one
If i makes it work ima get an old skate board and take wheels off and try stronger magnets in that add 2 loose magnets for vertical and horizontal parts so when i lean it moves faster
You can make theese and sell em for like 75 to 100 $ each and make a huge profit i know some people who want a real hover board for 250$ wow!
Sustain the incredible work !! Lovin’ it!|
U use a compass
