Lexus has completed a full and final reveal of its innovative hoverboard following a successful testing phase in Cubelles, Barcelona, Spain.
The hoverboard has been developed in just 18 months through collaboration between scientists from IFW Dresden and evico GmbH, which specialise in magnetic levitation technology.
The Lexus hoverboard technology features two “cryostats” – reservoirs in which superconducting material is kept at minus 197 degrees through immersion in liquid nitrogen.
The board is then placed above a track that contains permanent magnets.
Pro skateboarder and Lexus hoverboard test rider Ross McGouran tested the hoverboard in Dresden and then amongst the dynamic surroundings of Lexus’ purpose-built hoverpark in Barcelona.
The final reveal film, which was directed by award-winning director Henry-Alex Rubin, shows McGouran riding the Lexus hoverboard at the Lexus hoverpark and completing numerous manoeuvres including a jump over Lexus’ forthcoming GS F V8 high performance sedan.
