Earlier this year, Funny or Die released a prank video introducing the world’s first hoverboard. The comedic online website went all out to convince people that the futuristic means of transportation had arrived. They created a fake HUVr company and even enlisted skateboarding legend Tony Hawk to test it out. After going viral, Funny or Die confessed that the video was a hoax, and released a separate apology video for lying.

Now, it appears the real thing is on its way. A Los Gatos, California-based tech company named Hendo has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help produce actual hoverboards and create places to ride them. Hendo uses an innovative technology known as magnetic field architecture that lifts the hoverboards one inch above the ground. Tony Hawk got to try it out and it looks like it’s the real deal. Check out the video above and visit Hendo’s Kickstarter page here.
