    Lexus Build Working Hoverboard Is Now Real

    Lexus Build Working Hoverboard Is Now Real 

    Luxury vehicle maker Lexus has created a working hoverboard that glides on air just like the one made famous in “Back to the Future 2.” Here's how it works and the caveats. Lexus is the luxury vehicle division of Japanese automaker Toyota.

    Lexus engineer complete this project successfully in 1 year.

    The hoverboard is constructed from an insulated core, containing HTSLs (high temperature superconducting blocks). These are housed in cryostats - reservoirs of liquid nitrogen that cool the superconductors to -197°C. The board is then placed above a track containing permanent magnets. When the board is cooled to its operating temperature the track’s magnetic flux lines are ‘pinned’ into place, maintaining the hover height of the board.

    The balance between a traditional skate park and one that empowers the best ride for the hoverboard required going back to the drawing board.
