Hoverboard concepts have been all the rage in recent years, and while there have been no shortage of hoaxes and botched attempts, we’ve yet to see the real thing come to fruition. Lexus says that they’ve changed all that, developing the first real life hoverboard.
The board utilizes liquid nitrogen cooled superconductors paired with magnets to help riders levitate. And seeing that it’s Lexus, they couldn’t just skimp on the aesthetic appeal, outfitting the board with a bit bamboo to add some elegance to the mix. The brand teased us today with a 38 second clip that starts with the words, “There is no such thing as impossible,” as a dude transitions from his traditional skateboard to the Lexus Hover. We imagine we’ll be getting a more complete video in the coming days, and we’ll certainly keep you posted.
