The most important sci-fi gadget that never came to pass, however, was the famous hoverboard. The inventors of this futuristic device claimed that their invention would revolutionize society, but it is hard to believe that they were serious about their claim.
These hoverboards were said to be so durable that it could withstand even the crashing of a large airplane. In fact, in one particular episode of the Twilight Zone, a boy broke his hoverboard while attempting to fly a plane. Although the boy survived the incident, it became a huge public spectacle.
