Check out Tony Hawks ride an actual hoverboard. It looks really fun.

After more than 10 years travelling 6.4-billion kilometres on a road trip around the solar system, the spacecraft Rosetta has “arrived” at its destination, a distant comet named 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.

And they have done a pretty good job at it. Using an Oculus Rift, a 3D motion tracking system, and modern computing power they have created an impressive virtual environment.

You can walk through this environment for days without realizing that you are actually walking in circles.
