First real hoverboard - level 2
A company in California says that it created the world’s first real hoverboard. The hoverboard is like a skateboard, but it has no wheels and it hovers 1 inch off the ground. The company is testing its 18th prototype.
So how does it work? The hoverboard has four hover engines which create a special magnetic field. The field pushes against itself and levitates the board.
If you give $100 to the company, it will let you ride the hoverboard for 5 minutes. If you help the company by giving it $10,000, you can have a hoverboard. But you will have to wait until October 2015.
Difficult words: hover (remain in one place in the air), engine (machine which can make something move), levitate (make rise and hover in the air).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
