As part of the SLIDE project, Lexus engineers created a prototype hoverboard. This vehicle, similar to a skateboard, is able to move above the ground thanks to a system of magnets and superconductors that are cooled by liquid nitrogen. “Fill” hoverboard, the mass of which in total is about 11.5 kg, will have every 10 minutes with liquid nitrogen. In addition, you can use a flying skateboard only in a specially equipped area.
The prototype Lexus Hoverboard has already passed the first test at the test site in Barcelona. It was attended by professional skateboarder Ross McGuran. But, as we think, we should not expect the appearance of hoverboards on sale, at least in the next few years.
