  • I'm Christopher Lloyd.

  • About 25 years ago, I played Dr. Emmett Brown in the film 'Back to the Future Part II',

  • a landmark film. And amongst other things introduce the concept of hoverboards to the world.

  • Now, at the times as much as we all want hoverboards to be real, of course, it was an impossibility.

  • But I'm proud to announce, and thanks to the clever folks with HUVrTech,

  • the technology has caught up with the concept.

  • Well, my man

  • There she be

  • Finally

  • I can't believe how well it works. I really--I didn't think it would be that smooth.

  • You know, It always looked in the movie like

  • it was just awkward,

  • it was going sideways. And once I get on it, it feel natural, like, that's where it's going.

  • That's where it should be.

  • A lot of people that are skating nowadays that are adamant skate fans,

  • starting skating because of that movie. You can ask current pros --

  • You can ask and they will say : Yes, I started skating because of 'Back To The Future'.

  • When I first got on, I thought it was gonna be incredibly awkward.

  • I thought there would be this really sort of like extensive learning curve.

  • And it's intuitive. Like the moment you start riding it,

  • you know what to do. There's no precedent for this.

  • I have no idea how it works. I'm baffled by the technology.

  • But then again I am baffled by most technology.

  • It was an experience I've never experienced before.

  • The feeling is indescribable.

  • So, I feel like I was out of this world for a second.

  • And I looked down. And my feet are off the ground.

  • And I'm like "this is really happening?"

  • I didn't believe it. They told me they have a hoverboard that can fly.

  • I didn't believe it.

  • This is a crazy board. I love it.

  • It was crazy. I thought like, you know, the balance was going to be hard.

  • But it was--it was pretty cool. It was, ya, it was really easy.

  • Can I keep this? Uh, no.

  • Dude, come on, please

  • The Hoverboard has arrived.

  • This board has more technology within it, than the satellite that we sent in space in 2010.

  • I was in a dream. A real life dream.

  • One of the greatest days of my life.

  • I just want to say thank you for letting me be the one of the first people to try this out.

  • Because this is amazing.

  • I'm still in shock that I'm doing it. That I was here actually riding this thing.

  • I was hovering. It happened in my lifetime.

  • Well, this goes beyond, goes way beyond.

  • Thank you.

  • Yeah when I ride Hoverboards I have fun ~

  • Yeah when I ride Hoverboards I have fun ~

I'm Christopher Lloyd.
