Lexus Hoverboard

LEXUS introduced a short teaser video for SLIDE with a bamboo and carbon fiber skateboard, emitting wisps of smoke, levitates an inch or two off of what appears to be a concrete surface. The device employs “magnetic levitation” to achieve (and maintain) lift-off, which would be well and good if it weren’t for where it was levitating.

According to Lexus, its hoverboard relies on superconductors and magnets, which combine to repel the force of gravity and lift an object—like, say, a fancy skateboard and its rider—above the ground.
