    The magic behind the hoverboard lies in its four disc-shaped hover
    engines. These create a special magnetic field which literally pushes
    against itself, generating the lift which levitates our board off the
    ground.




    The Hendo Hoverboard is a first-step product, a precursor to the
    broader implementation of the world-changing technology of MFA. It
    enables a new generation of lift and motion technology that will change
    the way we view transportation. Additional applications for MFA
    technology are virtually limitless - from business, to industry, to
    healthcare, and beyond.



    Unlike magnetic levitation systems
    employed today, our hover systems are comparably inexpensive and
    completely sustainable. Hovering modes of transportation are now
    possible and practical. Lifting a wide range of loads - whether it's a
    person riding a hoverboard (what we were all expecting) or a building
    riding out an earthquake (what we never imagined could be possible) - is
    all within reach.

    It's a board that hovers.

    Exactly. So you have to have a magnetic surface as well?

    Right now it's dependent on a metal surface.
