Here's Another Teaser of Lexus' Awesome Hoverboard

It was just last month that Lexus revealed its new hoverboard, which was powered by magnets. The company had been working on the project for a long time and finally felt the project was worth revealing to the public.

This week, Lexus launched yet another teaser, this time in the form of a video, showing the hoverboard floating across the ground. Nitrogen-cooled semiconductors make it all possible, and that's why it appears to steam off with frosty air.

The only catch to using this hoverboard is that it requires a magnetic surface, which most concrete sidewalks are not. So it's difficult to say this device is useful in real-world conditions, but it's pretty awesome in the controlled conditions it's in.

Nonetheless, it's an awesome proof of concept that we're sure will help with research for future products.
