What say GL4x4 resident experts? If it's real, I'm going to need 5 of them or so.

A quick google search shows a lot of speculation, but no hard answers.

Discuss.

From their about section.
Quote:
What began as a summer project in 2010 at the MIT Physics Graduate Program has evolved into one of the most exciting independent products to be developed out of MIT since the high-powered lithium-ion batteries developed by Yet-Ming Chiang in 2001. Our team consists of materials science, electricity & magnetism experts who've solved an important part of one of science's mysteries: the key to antigravity.

The HUVr Board team ultimately aims to improve the efficiency, speed and sustainability of mass transportation. Yet rather than spend several more years closed off from the world while investing in research and development, the team and our world-class investors have worked to change the economics R&D by marketing this exciting consumer product in order to fund ongoing R&D.

Meh, I invented the real ones for the movie. I'm surprised they just now found my prototypes.

If the magnets can lift 180lbs a few inches off the asphalt, how is it that Terrell Owens is about 5 feet off the ground?

He's an actor. They cry for money all the time.

Look at how they are standing on the board. You can also see places where cable were holding thier clothes up.

Nope, my disbelief is based in logical reasoning. You must be wrong.

Wires and rigging. Check at the 2:10 mark on the video.

x2. You can see the board lift along a circumference as if being hung from a rig when the girl pushes it with the water bottle to the other person.

The editing that hid the wheels when the guy was riding it was pretty bad too.

You can see the actors have lift harness' on.. Unless they all became hunchbacks.
