Hoverboard Stories December 29, 2015

Chances are, you’ve heard something about hoverboards this year. Lexus kind of made one. There were hundreds of models put up for sale on Amazon. Many of which were not actual hoverboards and caught on fire. Turns out, just before the year comes to a close, we may finally get a real hoverboard.

ArcaSpace, a private space company (whatever that means), has released a new $19,900 product dubbed the ArcaBoard. With substantial amounts of power and thrust from an electric propulsion system, this hoverboard does actually fly.

What a way to end 2015.

The Lexus Hoverboard is here: watch as it flies around a skatepark and over water

The Lexus Hoverboard is here, after weeks of teasing, the SLIDE has arrived. Made of natural bamboo and weighing in at 25 pounds, Marty McFly’s dream has come true. Lexus released a video this morning showing professional skateboarders flying around a park while they hovered over water and concrete alike.

The hoverboard isn’t going to just go out on the street though, Lexus designed the track in the video specifically for the SLIDE with tracks of magnets to keep the board going. Regardless, it’s pretty sick.
