The Lexus Hoverboard Is Real And It Works – Marty McFly Where Are You?!

The cool-looking Lexus Hoverboard had us all hooked recently with the possibly of a futuristic machine that could float above the ground without the need for huge air fans or even a large battery pack. Turns out it was NOT a hoax – and Lexus have REALLY built a working hover board – sort of!

Using liquid nitrogen to cool a pack of superconductors down to -321, the hover board actually runs on underground magnetic tracks – so not just any surface, sadly. However it does prove that somewhere soon in the future we could have the amazing hover board that “Back To The Future” promised us – a devise that runs on magnets and float above any surface, even water.
