The Lexus Hoverboard Rides!

When we heard about the awesome hoverboard idea, designed for the Amazing in Motion campaign for Lexus, we were a bit skeptical about how it would work. The idea, which is obviously straight from the Back to the Future films, is great, but far-fetched.

Well, it turns out that the Lexus hoverbaord does work, just not as freely as some might have been led to expect from previous promos. It requires a special magnetic surface to operate on and it runs only for limited times before requiring recharge. Even with all of that, though, it’s pretty incredible. Check this video out.
