Real Lexus Hoverboard Will Take You Back To The Future

Be warned. You are about to witness one of the coolest developments in technology I’ve seen this year…

“Slide” by Lexus (2015)

If you grew up with the Back to the Future trilogy, at some point in your adolescence you probably dreamed of the day you could ride a hoverboard like Marty McFly. That day has finally arrived. Now you too can ride a hoverboard, just like Marty!

Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly rides a hoverboard in Back to the Future 2 (1989).

The new Lexus hoverboard “Slide”  is made up of bamboo, and holds up to 50 ounces of liquid nitrogen The entire board weighs just over 25 pounds. Slide’s clever design is certainly enough to make any Back to the Future fan fall in love at first sight.

Promotional videos featuring Slide in action have recently been released by Lexus to demonstrate it’s functionality in action…

Think of all the possibilities with consumer hoverboards. I challenge you to think of a cooler way to navigate a metropolitan area.

Watch out segway boards…Lexus just “one-upped” you. Clever design coupled with memories of Marty McFly in Back to the Future 2 make Slide a rather exciting advancement in technology, and perhaps a new pastime for traditional skateboarders.

You want to really impress us Lexus? Develop a hover-vehicle…

Back to the future 2 (1989)

Technology is taking cues from Back to the Future 2 continually. Oh, and hover-cars already exist of course, just not for consumers.

Will you give the Lexus hoverboard a try? Leave your thoughts in the comments below…
