The Gadget We Have All Been Waiting For

Jul 1st 2015 | lifestyle

This could quite easily be the gadget we have all been waiting for. Ever since watching “Back the Future”, thousands of us have dreamed of hopping onto a hoverboard and Lexus may have just broken the internet with their brand new video.

Lexus’ latest video from the series “Amazing in Motion” introduces their version of a hovercraft, which actually appears to be hovering. It took 18 months of development to create the board, which mainly consists of carbon fibre and wood and of course, a real eye-catcher. The hoverboard uses liquid nitrogen-cooled superconductors and permanent magnets (hence the foggy mist) that should be able to support the weight of a person. Lexus has announced more videos in the near future, in which the hoverboard is to be further tested. Watch this space!
