Well sometimes when you think that you have witnessed everything there is to see someone will always prove you wrong. That is exactly what Lexus International has done today with their out of this world hoverboard they are calling the Slide. Finally something that has only been seen in a Back to the Future Movie has now been made fully achievable by none other then a car company. Not someone who you would think would have anything to do with the sport of skateboarding but when it comes to hoverboading we are talking a whole other realm of boarding. Over countless designs and failures and over 400 days Lexus has finally engineered a working hover board how they did this was 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. yea we know sure that was a head full for you to ingest. That’s why us at Cultivated Clothing have put the videos below for you to watch just how this one of a kind design came to life.Check it Out!
