Here’s How The Lexus Hoverboard Really Works

So when it first came out, people thought it was a hoax. Then this new video emerged showing people actually riding the darn thing around a skate park! I was very sceptical at first… Was it trick photography? Digital editing? Magic? After doing some digging on their site, I soon found out that the hoverboard is in fact real, but it runs on tracks similar to a Magalev train.

These were built first, with the custom built park then made to go around it. Check the video above for the behind the scenes details.
