Lexus Creates a Hoverboard

walterbyrd writes: Lexus has built a functional prototype of a hoverboard that hovers several centimeters off the ground. The “Slide” is for demonstration purposes only and works through magnetic levitation created by superconductors, a spokesperson says. USA Today reports: “As cool as that sounds, there are some major limitations. Since it operates magnetically, it only can hover over a steel surface. And it also only works as long as the liquid nitrogen holds out.”
