A man just smashed a world record with a jet-powered Hoverboard. Franky Zapata a Frenchman, who invented the jet-powered Flyboard Air, set a new world record on Saturday for the farthest flight by a hoverboard. While it may not be as good as the Hoverboards in the Back to the Future franchise, this hoverboard is yet pretty impressive. It flies over a distance of 2,252 and this is surely the future of the Hoverboards. Enjoy.
