Get your vest and self-adjusting sneakers on, because the future’s here, apparently. This could very easily be a “Back to the Future” affair, although Lexus remains tame on this concept, a real concept that actually works as shown here in this video:

This is for real: it’s a real Lexus hoverboard. Yes, a hoverboard. Made by one of the biggest automobile manufacturers on the planet. Or the universe, for that matter.

Now You’re Probably Wondering How This Lexus Hoverboard Actually Lexus hoverboard Back to the FutureWorks

No, aliens have not descended onto us like the upcoming Independence Day sequel (minus Mr. Will Smith, sadly, so there won’t be any close encounters). Rather, the Lexus hoverboard really does revolve around pure science without the fiction, operating on what Lexus terms as “magnetic levitation with liquid nitrogen-cooled superconductors and permanent magnets. Sure. We get it, totally.

Basically, that just means it works. We can try to understand the science, but we’d obviously need to get into some education and a degree in science only Neil deGrasse Tyson would approve of.

What’s shocking, though, is the fact that the Lexus hoverboard isn’t the first functioning prototype at all in the past. The Lexus hoverboard, however, can work on concrete according to that teaser video. And there are no special effect tricks here. You’re seeing a Lexus hoverboard that’s literally hovering, and movable as if you’re escaping thugs in Hill Valley.

So When Can We See  This Lexus Hoverboard??

As I write this, the hoverboard prototype is, in fact, being tested in Barcelona, Spain. And it brings in floods of imagination and dreams about the possibility that we could have hovering speeder cars like in Star Wars very soon. It could very well be possible as far as automotive innovation and technology is concerned. However, don’t look for this happening any time soon, as the Lexus hoverboard won’t be for sale…. Yet.
