A side-by-side comparison of the final scene from Back To The Future and the opening scene from Back To The Future II — i.e., the scene that had to be re-shot when Claudia Wells decided not to reprise the role of Jennifer Parker, and Elizabeth Shue stepped in.

French artist Nils Guadagnin is paying homage to Back to the Future II in the most appropriate way: by recreating the pink hoverboard Marty McFly, erm, "procures" from a little girl. And hover it does — it even has a nice little bounce when the artist taps it.
Sadly, it probably doesn’t have enough lift for anyone to ride it, though Guadagnin certainly didn’t skimp on the tech: “Integrated into the board and the plinth is an electromagnetic system which levitates the board. A laser system stabilises the object in the air.” Lasers!
Here’s a video showing off Guadagnin’s board:
And, of course, here’s this.
