Several companies have drawn on hovercraft technology to attempt and create hoverboard like products but none have demonstrated similar experiences to those depicted in films like Back to the futures II. Japanese luxury car maker LEXUS has just teased the world with their hoverboard concept named simply, Slide.

The Lexus Hoverboard uses magnetic levitation to achieve amazing frictionless movement. Liquid nitrogen cooled superconductors and permanent magnets combine to allow Lexus to create the impossible.

Wrapped in a design that is uniquely Lexus, the Hoverboard features the iconic Lexus spindle grille signature shape, using materials found in the luxury car brand, from the high tech to the natural bamboo.

The Lexus hoverboard represents true engineering innovation and over the coming weeks, they’ll be bringing regular updates on the progress of this extraordinary project. Follow the conversation using #LexusHover

Annoyingly, according to the BBC, the company has said it doesn’t intend to sell the device though.
