Lexus Drops a hover board on us out of nowhere!

lexus_hover_board
Lexus just announced that it is currently in the final stages of testing its hover board. This is a real life hover board. This isn’t a joke, we haven’t gone back in time and the DeLorean is still safe and sound in Docs garage. With that out of the way, prepare yourself for a real life LEXUS hover board teaser. This is similar to the Hendo hover board that Tony Hawk rode last year. Both boards use magnetic levitation to create frictionless movement. The Hendo demonstration relied on the surface being metal in order to create levitation. This Lexus teaser shows the board in what appears to be a concrete skate park which leaves us wondering what (if anything) they have up their sleeve. If you are ready to jump all in and shell out whatever it takes for this then you may be disappointed. This is a technology showcase for the company and not a product they intend to sell any time soon. If anything it shows that the idea of a hover board isn’t dead after all these years. Maybe that’s good enough for now…

We’ve hit the point where hands free calling, voice recognition and iPod integration are all standard fair inside your vehicle. Now manufacturers are looking to the Smartwatch to enhance their vehicles.
