Is this a scam like the recent videos? Are they messing with me? I can't dare to hope again.

There's still time to make "Back to the Future" come true!

"Good thing I don't heal my characters or they'd be really hurt." Is not something I should ever be thinking.

 

I use blue text when I'm being sarcastic.

I don't even skateboard and I'm excited.

Up next flying cars, take that Michellini you morbidly obese ghost.

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

I'm going to go ahead and assume this is a hoax, that way if it turns out to be true I can be pleasantly surprised, rather than get my hopes up and be crushed if it turns out to be fake.

So far everything that I've read says it's real but very, very limited.

 

Like Gfted1 posted it needs a smooth metal surface since it's powered by magic magnetic mumbojumbo

It might be all right for amusement parks and/or specially built rinks. But then it becomes a chicken-and-the-egg marketing problem, with normal skate boards holding a massive advantage.

Really? Because I was thinking more along the lines of bullet train, which IIRC works on the same concept.

Huh? Well hopefully the bullet train is more economical than its alternative: aircraft. Otherwise it's wasting spending billions of yen on construction and support costs. But if so, then there is a valid reason for the bullet train to exist. Not so the hover toy. It will require construction overhead just to make the toy usable, and the potential users already have skate boards with free parks nearby.
