This week, Paul, Amelia, Donna and Ken speak with Greg Henderson, architect and co-founder of Arx Pax, the company that is bringing the long-fantisized hoverboard to the market. We also discuss the hoverboard's technology and its potential applications in architecture. Greg holds an M.Arch from UC Berkeley, leading to our discussion on the history behind Working Out of the Box, and what may come next for the series, now that employers have more jobs than there are architects to fill them.
