SEATTLE, October 21, 2015 — Arx Pax, a Silicone Valley start-up has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for research and development of its Hendo Hoverboard. It has a compelling video which shows its “competition to the wheel” with a Back to the Future style hoverboard; it’d be great to see what Tony Hawk could do on one.

Backers of $299 or more, will get their very own Whitebox Developers Kit which has one of the anti-gravity motor assemblies inside the box that they’re allowed to use in any way they’d like. The notion of this campaign is to get as many of these “developer kits” into the hands of as many people as possible to see how many practical uses can be derived from their technology.

Founders, Greg and Jill Henderson, started their project a number of years ago which received a great deal of patents for their “Magnetic Field Architecture” (MFA) and started doing their own development of this project. While Greg admits the concept isn’t new, however, what’s different is the MFA technology, which offers a more efficient way to use electromagnetic energy.

Currently, the company is projecting a release date of October 15, 2015, backers of the highest  level will get their own hoverboard to keep.

This hoverboard is a proof-of-concept and starting point. The company looks to expand the possibilities of its MFA technology into many other facets of our lives.
