A Canadian invented a hoverboard that actually flies, sets a Guinness World Record

A Canadian, Alexandru Duru has invented a hoverboard that can actually fly. With this new invention, he sets a new Guinness World Record.

To break an existing world record, he had to travel using his prototype hoverboard more than 5 meters but he smashed the record by traveling five times the required distance, an astonishing 275 meters while flying more than 5 meters before the hoverboard ran out of batteries.

According the the Guinness World Record spokesperson, it’s a great achievement in the world of engineering and transportation and a astonishing new world record in the field of future travel.

The hoverboard uses a set of propellers like a drone to fly. The video posted by CBC News has received more than 46 million views since it was posted.
