Lexus Hoverboard : It’s here

Lexus Hoverboard 560x219After teasing us for a few weeks, Lexus has finally unveiled the Hoverboard they’ve been working on, named SLIDE.

The Lexus Hoverboard represents true innovation and imagination, together pushing the boundaries of technology even further. The wait is over. As our legendary Takumi craftsmen say “the difficult takes time; the impossible just takes a little longer”.
