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.

Lexus just teased a new hoverboard and it looks awesome

Update (7/30 10:30am): Lexus has released another teaser video, this time announcing that it will finally take the wraps of its new hoverboard on August 5th.

Lexus is showing off a hoverboard today – yeah, you read that right – and it looks pretty sick. By combining liquid nitrogen-cooled conductors and magnets, it will lift a rider off the ground while standing on a bamboo platform. The nitro does make a pretty cool effect with the slight smoke billowing out. There aren’t many details at this time, but it certainly is worth checking out the teaser video:

Turns out, Lexus isn’t the only car company working on some cool technology. Ford has detailed a new e-bike that can fold up into your car’s trunk. Called the MoDe:Flex, although we don’t have much information other than that, Ford has released a video showing it cruising around.

It can sync with the Mode:Link smartphone app to plan routes, tracking progress, etc. Although it’s currently a prototype, this would be a pretty killer way to get around town.
