Lexus Has Invented A Working Hoverboard

Shades of Back To The Future! Check out this working model of an actual hoverboard developed by Lexus.

Very cool, but it’s not quite there yet.

From Bloomberg:

Even though Lexus and Evico were able to pull off the project, don’t expect to see a hoverboard fly past while you’re walking down the street next year. To use maglev technology that would make this sort of hoverboard work, you need a magnetic metal track. Normal concrete pavements won’t do. Lexus solved this issue by converting a skate park in Barcelona into a temporary hoverboard skate park. On an existing track composed of cement and wood, the Lexus and Evico teams swooped in to lay down hundreds of small magnets.
