Isn't there a dude sponsored to ride these?
Popped up on my news feed.

Just by how they look, they seem iffy

I would love to see them evolve into a sort of waveboard hybrid. Maybe on the lines of a dirtsurfer?
I'm picturing one with some sort of torsion middle

Also they look like they're made out of hollowed out plastic.

I don't think I'd want to ride one of those... Same reason I don't ride freaking scooters/dirt scooters. 4 wheels or nothing.
If they made it a rip-stick type deal, it might be a cool idea for flat trails, but still hard to see getting into it.

I do like how portable they seem. Anyone who has ever been backpacking with a mountainboard will probably agree with me that those things are pretty damn cumbersome to lug around.

indeed! but thats where nosnos are great. although heavy they pack up much smaller and are VERY easy to reassemble.
I strive to ride as much as a go on http://www.surfingdirt.com/forum

Usually if I'm hiking with my board, I either attach a rope leash to the front and pull it behind me, or I use a snowboard strap that wraps the board onto my back, but I do see your point on the backpacking. You've already got the weight and cumbersomeness (< that even a word?) of the pack and everything else you're carrying. another 20 pounds strapped to your back is just that much worse that much faster.
