Inventor Greg Henderson says the true innovation is not the attention-grabbing hoverboard, but his patented Magnetic Field Architecture technology, which he says has disruptive potential to slash energy consumption and boost disaster resilience.
The new approach to magnetism, he said, "is the easiest, most efficient way to separate an object from the Earth and to overcome friction.

Until now, however, F2F college education has stood the test of time. The current experiment might show that four-year F2F college education can no longer rest on its laurels.
A variety of factors — most notably the continuously increasing cost of tuition, already out of reach for most families, implies that the post-secondary education market is ripe for disruption.
