No, this doesn’t have to do with BMX, but this is damn amazing. Lexus have created a hoverboard and dropped this video to prove it! Watch as these guys cruise… Well, attempt to cruise, one hell of a skatepark to test out this crazy piece of technology. Below is a little more information on how it works, but we suggest you check out the Lexus Hoverboard website to really learn how it works! About damn time we got hover boards… Now, where’s my jetpack?
“We’ve made the impossible, possible: The Lexus Hoverboard is here.

The Lexus Hoverboard represents true innovation and imagination, together pushing the boundaries of technology even further.”
The hoverboard is constructed from an insulated core, containing HTSLs (high temperature superconducting blocks). These are housed in cryostats – reservoirs of liquid nitrogen that cool the superconductors to -197°C. The board is then placed above a track containing permanent magnets. When the board is cooled to its operating temperature the track’s magnetic flux lines are ‘pinned’ into place, maintaining the hover height of the board.”
