Technology just opened a door to the future as Luxury automaker Lexus unveiled a device that seem to have blurred the line between reality and fiction.
The new gadget, which looks to be the size and shape of a skateboard, resembles the iconic hoverboard form the movie ‘Back To the future.’ And just as it’s fictional counterpart, it appears to float about two inches off the ground as it exhales fog from the liquid nitrogen used to cool its superconductors and magnets. It’s absolutely mind-blowing!
The video below shows a young man riding a regular skateboard and then stepping on the new flying board. While the video doesn’t actually show him riding it around, the company says this flying board is “ridable,” and researchers believe this technology could be a first step toward a flying car.
Lexus said it will begin testing the board in Barcelona this summer. Watch the video released by Lexus and let us know your thoughts in the comment’s section below!
