This is Lexus, the luxury car brand of Toyota, which unveiled the prototype skate levitationstraight out of Back to the Future. We had seen fakes spend several videos that showed this type of skate levitation but aujourd ‘hui it seems that this is reality.
Hoverboard Slide – Operation
The operating principle of this hoverboard is not new. It is used by the Maglev, the Japanese train that broke speed records over 600 km / h. It is the magnetic levitation. In short, this levitation superconductivity is achieved through powerful super magnets cooled by liquid nitrogen. This keeps it to a few centimeters above the ground and thus avoid friction and any friction. The small problem is that it takes a special metal floor to use it.
Hoverboard Slide – From blurry and little information
Lexus is deliberately vague and gives no information on this prototype. No known autonomy, commercialization or date or price. In short still many unknowns surrounding this slide. We will no doubt more information this summer because of the tests would be provided in Barcelona.Wait and see!
