The hoverboard’s cost is estimated to be around $20,000 (Rs 14 lakhs), which many are finding to be cheap. It is being claimed that the hoverboard has been manufactured by a Canada-based company, Omni Hoverboards which is ‘dedicated to propeller-based hoverboards.’ The company has even set a world record with its invention which broke the Guinness World Record by covering a distance of 275.9 m.Ever since the release of Back to The Future, hoverboards have captivated people’s fascination and while many attempted to replicate one, they were unsuccessful.
