Lexus has taken the wraps off their new hoverboard prototype.

Billed as "one of the most advanced hoverboards ever developed," the prototype was created with the assistance of "world leading experts in super conductive technology."  While that sounds like an April Fool's Day joke, Lexus says the hoverboard uses "liquid nitrogen cooled superconductors and permanent magnets" to create magnetic levitation for "amazing frictionless movement."

Little else is known about the hoverboard but Lexus says it was created as part of their ‘Amazing in Motion’ campaign and will begin testing in Barcelona, Spain in the coming weeks.
