Back to the Future fans, rejoice! We are sort of on our way to having real hover boards. TechCrunch reports that Arca Space Corporation has developed the AcraBoard, an almost-real hover board that has "35 high-power electric ducted fans with a maximum thrust of 430 lbs. It also pairs with a smartphone app to let you steer via a built-in stabilization system, or you can turn that off and steer with your body."

The board currently caps out at 12.5 mph with a six-minute batter life. The heavier you weigh, though, the shorter the battery life. Acra Space Corporation is super passionate about the project, having its primary focus on stratospheric rockets, balloons, and drones. I'm not entirely sure what a stratospheric rocket is, but I trust the company that develops those to make a hover board versus the companies producing the boards causing the horrific accidents this holiday season.

It's exciting that Acra Corp. is on its way to creating a real-life (and safe) hover board, but there's one major downfall - it retails for about $19,900.

Don't worry, the super-charger that will charge the board in 35 minutes versus the standard six hours only costs a mere $4,500. #SAYWHAAAAAT
