Ok, so its not a time-traveling Delorean, but this is still pretty cool: Lexus has built an honest-to-God hoverboard.
Now, you can’t buy the floating skateboard just yet, but it is a working prototype, powered by superconductors and magnets, according to Bloomberg. Marty McFly, the hero of Back to the Future, famously rode a hoverboard in the second installment of the trilogy, released in 1989.
Right now the hoverboard has only been tested in Japan, but Toyota [fortune-stock symbol=”TM”], Lexus’ parent company, plans to bring tests to Barcelona soon. Here is a video of the hoverboard in action:
Toyota has also considered how to bring this technology to cars, Bloomberg notes.
