Lexus Creates a Real Hoverboard!


That’s right Back to The Future Fans, you heard me correctly! The Engineers at Lexus in conjunction with a team of scientists from IFW Dresden and Evico GmbH. The Lexus Hoverboard features two “cryostats,” reservoirs in which superconducting material is kept at -197 degrees through immersion in liquid nitrogen. Permanent magnets then rest underneath the board, as Dr. Oliver de Haas, evico CEO, says, “The magnetic field from the track is effectively ‘frozen’ into the superconductors in the board, maintaining the distance between the board and the track—essentially keeping the board hovering. This force is strong enough to allow the rider to stand and even jump on the board.” Check out the video and let us know what you think…
