We may be one step closer to the coolest form of transportation this side of Marty McFly in 'Back to the Future Part II.'

A company called Hendo Hover has launched a KickStarter page to raise funds for a real-life working hoverboard with the goal of pulling in $250,000.

Clearly, Hendo Hover has touched a nerve because it's almost near its goal.

Skeptical? You have every right to be. We've seen hoverboards that appeared to be real before -- only to later learn it was a hoax or simply not functional.

This endeavor appears to be earnest, however, so hop on your non-flying skateboard and get to the bank to pull your life's savings in the hopes of making this a reality.
