No, you’re eyes are not deceiving you, what you’re looking at is an actual real life, fully functional, “Back To The Future” Marty McFly Hoverbaord. The one thing every teenage boy (and girl) always wanted but only had to wait two-decades for, has finally arrived courtesy of automaker Lexus.
The luxury automotive brand partnered with world leading experts in super conductive technology to create one of the most advanced Hoverboards ever developed. The Hoverboard operates using magnetic levitation to achieve amazing frictionless movement. Liquid nitrogen cooled superconductors and permanent magnets combine to allow Lexus to create the impossible. Wrapped in a design that is uniquely Lexus, the Hoverboard features the iconic Lexus spindle grille signature shape and uses materials found in the luxury car brand, from the high tech to natural bamboo.
The Lexus Hoverboard is part of the fourth project in the Lexus ‘Amazing in Motion’ campaign that showcases the creativity and innovation of the Lexus brand. Testing of the Lexus Hoverboard will be taking place in Barcelona, Spain over the coming weeks.
