The Hoverboard is Here!

We all have seen this iconic scene from Back to the Future 2 (one of my favorites):

Well, now…we’re getting closer!

Back in June, Lexus announced they made a functioning HOVERBOARD, but the video they posted didn’t really show it in action.

But they released a longer video yesterday that shows a bunch of people trying it out at a skate park in Spain.  And it looks like it really does work . . . but it’s not quite up to par with the one in the film.

This one uses super-magnets that have to be chilled to 300-degrees below zero.  And the entire skate park they filmed it at ALSO had magnets built into it.

So it wouldn’t work if you tried to ride it down a regular sidewalk.  But the video is still pretty cool.
