The Lexus Hoverboard Skate Park Demo


By usfndns / / Lexus has been developing the product for the past 18 months. It uses two “cryostat” reservoirs which are able to keep a superconducting material at -197 degrees by immersing it in liquid nitrogen. “The magnetic field from the track is effectively ‘frozen’ into the superconductors in the board, maintaining the distance between the board and the track—essentially keeping the board hovering,” said Dr. Oliver de Haas, the CEO of evico. “This force is strong enough to allow the rider to stand and even jump on the board.” Currently, the board only works at the designated hoverpark built in Cubelles, a village outside of Barcelona.. Hell yes, science.
