Hoverboard – The flying skateboard by Lexus

With the SLIDE project, Japanese designer Haruhiko Tanahashi has created a new hoverboard, this legendary flying skateboard that we are all desperately waiting for since the movie Back to the Future II. If the object created for Amazing In Motion (Lexus) is beautiful, and apparently usable, don’t dream too much, as this hoverboard is using superconductivity with magnets and liquid nitrogen to fly above a metal plate. So do not expect to wander in the streets hooked to the back of a futuristic car… But we are slowly approaching this dream !
