Riding the Lexus hoverboard in Spain

  • Published: 04 August 2015
  • Lexus invited us to Spain to ride the hoverboard it created for a commercial. Our resident skateboarder Sam Sheffer found the board to be very difficult to ride — but it does hover! Read the full story here: http://www.theverge.com/2015/8/4/9091951/lexus-hoverboard-video

          If they actually made it with a handle, would that make it easier to ride a levitating skateboard?

                                      The actual body and contour flaws of the board are the problem. Angled and directional magnetism at the edges of the board at a 45° would stabilize the board. It should be like a floating snowskate.

                                                    I've been saying for the passed decade stop trying to make things float with fans and use magnets. We could make super magnetic highways and to get the cars to move just tilt the panels forward every 10 to 20 feet and you have hovering cars without a engine. Put brakes on the car in order to stop obviously and let go of the brake to go. Or start putting in magnetic lanes. No refueling ever. No eletric bill. No tires. No maintenance besides the brakes lol.

                                                      @Spag Face you act like cars arent now.. I've been street racing my whole life and it's not like we go to a dirt lot to do it... we do it on the streets. Yea I've taken my x's evo on fire roads and my long travel f150 to the desert but thoughs are all purpose built cars. I'm not talking about purpose built cars especially anything from Corvettes to Ford Raptors I'm talking about the A to B drivers. Plus you can have normal lanes next to magnetic lanes.

                                                      Problem with that is the cars will be limited as to where they can go. At least i know with my suzuki i can go offroad whenever i want. Plus its incredibly expensive, which is why maglev trains arent a huge thing
