No, it is not science fiction, it is the aeropatín Lexus, the Lexus Hoverboard


Lexus he has succeeded. It has created a worthy floating skateboard “Back to the Future” , a skateboard able to rise a few millimeters above the ground and awaken the child within us. It sounds like science fiction, seems crazy, but that “toy” of the future with a past that dream … now it’s real and we can see in video .

The skater Ross McGouran has been commissioned to try this Lexus Hoverboard.

“Pushing the limits of technology, design and innovation to make the impossible possible” . That is the leitmotiv that has pushed the Japanese firm to shape this “hoverboard” in a process that took 18 months and which have come together a team come from IFW and EVICO GmbH , specialized in the technology of magnetic levitation.

But how the Lexus hoverboard work?

The movement of this hoverboard flotation occurs through a maglev provided by a superconducting therein are cooled by immersion in Nitrogen to – 197th, hence the “smoke” that looks out from his side.

The key to the operation of this hoverboard is that this aeropatín loaded superconducting can only slide on a track, on a skate park, specifically created under which a number of staying magnets they do possible to fly.

someday will see these skates in the streets? still seems early course, the need for a skate park is a great magnetic ballast hoverboard in the case of Lexus, but certainly there are several companies struggling to develop, to create such aeropatín dreamed that one day we captured on film.
