    Lexus Slide Hoverboard

    I want to call shenanigans on this, but I am still intrigued by what they are claiming!



    If for some reason this is real, I have a feeling it is somehow based on quantum levitation...



    I am going to remain quite skeptical until I see someone riding it on concrete though! Thoughts?

    They'll keep people up to date via social media and the site on the project.

    Liquid cooled superconductors and permanent magnets. I have no idea how that works.

    Fantastic. What will they do next? I can see it has limitations for practicality but the science there is amazing. Science making fiction into fact. Quantum trapping he says, WTF? Bloody marvellous

    Next, give us free energy and solve world poverty please!

    Maglev trains and cars that travel on tracks. Combine this with full automation and you can remove the deadly human factor from the equation of traffic.

    They just need to figure out a way to infuse magnetic properties into concrete and start paving all roads and walkways with it! Imagine having a car that glides frictionless down the road!

    Sounds perfectly do-able but just incredibly expensive. A way off in the future yet. Incredible technology though.
