Back to the Future: Messer to auction hoverboard with light effects

For a good cause the family-owned company Messer will auction a designer hoverboard with light effects because today is “Back to the Future” day. Starting today, this unique item will be on offer on eBay for seven days. The largest privately managed specialist for industrial gases in the world used the board for one of its photo shoots. “By auctioning the board and rounding up the sum, we would like to contribute to the advancement of young people," says Diana Buss, Spokeswoman for Messer. The proceeds from this auction will be rounded up by Messer and the entire sum will be donated to the foundation Jugend forscht e.V., which fosters young people’s interest in science and research.
