Lexus goes back to the future, too, with Hoverboard development

lexus-board-876Lexus is working with experts in super conductive technology to develop its own branded Lexus Hoverboard.

The Lexus Hoverboard uses magnetic levitation for frictionless movement. Liquid nitrogen cooled superconductors and permanent magnets combine to allow Lexus to create what seems impossible except for in the movies like “Back to the Future II.”

This hoverboard has a design that is pure Lexus. It has an iconic Lexus spindle grille signature shape and uses materials found in the luxury car brand, from the high tech to natural bamboo.

The Lexus Hoverboard is part of the fourth project in the Lexus ‘Amazing in Motion’ campaign that showcases the creativity and innovation.

Testing of the Lexus Hoverboard will be Barcelona, Spain for a few weeks. Some critics say that the board will only work over metal surfaces because it is magnetic.

It will interesting to see the Hoverboard will have ADAS features such as Lane Departure Warnings or adaptive cruise control

It you’d like one please be advised that the Lexus Hoverboard is a prototype and will not be available for sale.
