the video says it's real at the beginning, but the crane is for the camera mount which you can control the camera crane to follow the person on the hoverboard.

 

The video is made for HUVr Tech... http://huvrtech.com

Sorry, kids, it's faked.

 

 

Another video attempts to explain how this miraculous feat of technology actually works. Along with the YouTube videos, HUVr has also popped up across social media with accounts on Facebook and Instagram. Obviously the product we're seeing here is bogus — despite some convincing video trickery. We've thus far been unable to find any record of such a company existing or any trademarks filed for HUVr. But we're still left scratching our heads when it comes to what this viral stunt is actually seeking to promote.

For people saying his foot doesn't touch the ground, try watching Back To The Future Part II - a foot on the ground wasn't needed either for forward momentium. Obviously it's a reference to the movie. :p

 

If real, I want a Pitbull!
