Lexus will make Marty McFly’s from “Back to The Future” dream comes true when they are going to test the prototype of their first hoverboard in Barcelona in couple of weeks from now. We all saw Marty in Back to the Future II using a hoverboard. Now the Japanese Car Company Lexus is turning science fiction into reality.

Executive vice president of Lexus International, Mr Mark Templin said, “It’s the perfect example of the amazing things that can be achieved when you combine technology, design and imagination.’’ The Lexus hoverboard combines of Liquid Nitrogen, Magnetic Levitation and Permanent magnets.

However there was an American company Arx Pax that launched its Hendo Hoverboard last year. Tested and approved by the professional Skateboarder Tony Hawk, Arx Pax is hoping to start shipping its Hendo Hoverboard in October.
