I'm Your Crash Test Dummy: Lexus Making A Hoverboard

June 24, 2015

This is a teaser video for Lexus's liquid-nitrogen cooled semiconductor and magnet powered hoverboard. Lexus insists it really does hover with a rider and promises more test footage soon. It only works on certain metallic surfaces though (the surface in the video was just made to look like concrete). It sounds pretty similar to the Hendo hoverboard that's coming out. Personally, I want a hoverboard that works on all surfaces, including the bones of my fallen enemies. Ninja sword hoverboard fight? You bet your sweet ass! The future is gonna be so awesome provided I don't die next year like my psychic predicted.

Keep going for the video, then realize if they're lying and it doesn't actually work then how are we supposed to believe any of the safety features in their cars work either?

Thanks to my pal Terry, who I have every intention of making my first ninja sword hoverboard battle victim.

    These are all very cool ideas and everything, but I just can't get excited until one works over all surfaces.... which I know is very unlikely unless we start manipulating electromagnetic fields and a bunch of other stuff that is still science fiction and way over my head.

    Liquid nitrogen cooled semiconductors? Isn't that the idea they had on The Big Bang Theory?

    gw posted the same concept years ago
    also its a shame nobody has a tap in their house for liquid fucking nitrogen

    Superconductor, not semiconductor. Specifically, type II high temperature superconductor.

    Save the clock tower?

    I want one that works on water
