Recently, Lexus presented a short video with its new creation, a prototype of a hoverboard.

The device is like a standard skateboard only with a little thickening in the area, where an ordinary skateboard has wheels. On the video, the device is levitating a few feet above the ground and one can see a light fog from underneath the board. This is a liquid nitrogen, that cools down powerful magnets and superconductors inside the novelty.

Unfortunately, Lexus didn’t come up with a brand new idea of levitation as the technology, used in the board is the same as the one that is being used in Maglevs, high-speed trains that are used in Japan. But nevertheless, this technology is a small step closer to the skateboard one might have seen in the popular movie of the 80’s, ‘Back To the Future’. Also, technologies used in the skateboard might be used to build a real flying car.

The video is ending on the most interesting part when a man tries to step on the board though the company’s representatives say that their creation is pretty functional.
