Always wanted a hoverboard like the one Marty McFly rode in "Back to the Future II"? All you need is $10,000. That's the cost of the Hendo hoverboard, which uses magnetic technology to create a frictionless, floating ride. But the technology could also be used during natural disasters. CNET's Stephen Beach and Kara Tsuboi show us how it works.
Inventor Greg Henderson shows off the Hendo hoverboard, which uses "magnetic field architecture" to levitate people and objects. Hover engine developer kits are now available on Kickstarter for creatives to float just about anything. Crave's Stephen Beacham gives the futuristic ride a go.

Count us among the swaths of people super excited about the next Avengers movie; that being said, we're just barely scratching the surface of some of the things we saw in the trailer today, because we wanted to leave some of the mystery up to you.
Hendo just launched a Kickstarter promising real, working hoverboards exactly one year from today. If you haven't brushed up on your "Back to the Future" trivia, October 21, 2015 is the very same day and year Marty McFly time-traveled to in the movie. Coincidence? We think not.
On a call with analysts, Apple CEO explains why the company's smartphone is doing well but its tablet isn't.
On today's show, we discuss go karts that remind us a little too much of Mario Kart, an art installation that creates textile patterns out of sound, and working hoverboards. Yes: working hoverboards.
