Video: Lexus build a Back to the Future style hoverboard


Thought hover technology was science-fiction? Think again, because Lexus has created a working hoverboard.

Engineers at Japanese car company Lexus have been working with experts in super-conductive technology to create one of the most advanced hoverboards the world has ever seen.

The hoverboard uses magnetic levitation with liquid nitrogen-cooled superconductors and permanent magnets to give the hoverboard "frictionless movement" of a kind that had been thought impossible, according to Lexus.
