As Close To Hoverboarding As We're Probably Going To Get

What do this original Kinect and Wii Balance Board have in common? Aside from a general irrelevance to video games in 2014, they've also come together to bring us the hoverboarding future that the real world has sadly failed to deliver.

The two peripherals link up with an Oculus Rift headset to form the cornerstone of Hoverboard VR, the creation of a Dutch ad agency that combines all three inputs (and their player sensations) to give a very primitive impression of virtual hoverboarding.

Some may scoff at the visuals, but think of them as a virtual tour of old Master System box art and suddenly it's a lot more compelling.
