The hoverboard made famous in the movie Back To The Future has been listed for sale online.

And in every important respect - except for the fact it doesn't fly - it's exactly the same as the one in the film.

The retro-futurist replica was developed with the film's special effects supervisor, Michael Lantieri. For just $130 you get perhaps the most iconic kids gadget in film history.

It is a 1:1 scale model - about 28-inches long - and has "whooshing" sound effects sampled from the films.

The makers add:

"And although full hovering technology isn't expected until 2015, be assured your Hoverboard will gently glide over most level surfaces (it will not, however, work on water)."
