> the most up to date idea for a hoverboard is the ion containment field method. simply put, large amounts or air are ionized and then "trapped" under the board by a strong magnetic field. you can ionize air simply by running a HeNe laser through the center of a magnetic ring. the trouble comes in around controling the magnetic field to keep the ions trapped at further distances without letting them escape. also, only the one type of ion (+ or -) can be used, do that it can repel itself off the ground. any q's, just e-mail me at latez

Interesting. So this would force the air itself to take on, for lack of a better description, a magnetic pole repulsive character (i.e. supercharged paramagnetic). In effect, you'd be creating that rare beast called the monopole. :-)

Cool. I'm sure that most of us here enjoy hearing about the latest ideas such as these in the world of science. Feel free to take us for a spin. If this is your first time posting here then a hearty Welcome to the Rinkforum, vinni!
