Ever since Back To The Future 2 the world has been dreaming about a hoverboard. Since then we’ve had numerous videos emerge, exciting and pranking viewers worldwide supported by the likes of Tony Hawk. New footage has emerged from Lexus as a part of its “Amazing in Motion” series of videos presenting a real and rideable hoverboard. The video below appears to be convincing enough, showing a skateboard looking device hovering above the ground however we don’t see anyone ride it.
Built from carbon fibre and wood, “the Lexus Hoverboards use magnetic levitation to achieve amazing frictionless movement. Liquid nitrogen cooled superconductors and permanent magnets combine to allow them to create the impossible.” Mental!
