You may or may not remember the hoverboard prank that skate legend Tony Hawk was involved in last year. Well, Hawk returns to help build a hoverboard that may actually become commercially available very soon.

As we see in the new version, the updated deck is much thinner, sleeker and supposedly quieter than the first model.
