Getaway cars are sooo 20th century.

In a sign that the times are indeed a-changin', police in Britain are on the hunt for a man who stole an energy drink from a supermarket and then escaped on a hoverboard.

Side note: why does someone on a hoverboard need an energy drink? It's not like he's running.

It's good to know it didn't even take until the end of 2015 for someone to find a sinister use for this technological breakthrough.

When holograms officially become a thing, you just know some mad genius will be sitting in his lair like Dr. Evil, hands in a steeple position, with his goons working overtime for a way to break into the U.S. Mint.

Trust us, it's gonna happen.
