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. It appears much thicker and heavier than Marty McFly’s famous Mattel model, and it requires a specially built skate park in order to operate, but it does indeed work. Check out this awesome video of some skaters getting oriented with the technology. There is definitely a bit of a learning curve to riding this thing, even for a professional.

Lexus put together a website dedicated to sharing the entire journey of building the SLIDE, which demonstrates the Lexus desire to create enjoyment out of motion:

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”.
