Lexus continues to tease their new hoverboard [video]

Lexus has released a new teaser video which promotes their hoverboard prototype.

Staring professional skater and hoverboard test rider Ross McGouran, the video shows the hoverboard floating a few inches off the ground as McGouran runs his hand underneath it.  While the clip doesn’t show McGouran actually riding the board, he says “It literally feels like I’m starting all over again from the beginning – it’s never been done before.”  He goes on to say “There’s no friction underneath you at all and I’m forgetting what I’m actually doing … floating on air.”

Lexus is still keeping details under wraps but they have previously said the hoverboard uses “liquid nitrogen cooled superconductors and permanent magnets” to create magnetic levitation for “amazing frictionless movement.”
