Re: Apparently working Hoverboard... with some constraints.

Although what effort (except paying for the copper) would it take to mix grinded copper powder into asphalt? Roads need replacing every now and then as they obviously wear out. My guess is that the particles would wear out rubber tires faster and the concentration of copper wouldn't be enough for th...

It claims that even at that time tough/light enough plastic can be made to withstand 1 atmosphere of press...
