Real hoverboard? naah

  26/06/2015

Lexus has created a real, rideable hoverboard

Lexus revealed a 30 second teaser that included a real-life functional hoverboard very similar to the one that Marty McFly used in 1989’s “Back to the Future Part II”. Allegedly, the board uses “magnetic levitation to achieve amazing frictionless movement” along with “liquid nitrogen cooled superconductors and permanent magnets.” But since concrete isn’t magnetic it’s highly unlikely that the board acts as it does in the ad.

Anyway, as soon as the leg guy steps on it in ad, video ends. Thats quite enough for most of people to get an impression this whole LookWeMadeAHoverBoard thing doesnt seem to be real. Will they (Lexus) bring a nerds army hatred storm upon them after this is yet to be seen.

  • A UI For Your Redis-Backed Queues 13/05/2019
    When working with queues, it can often prove difficult to see what's happening. For example, how many jobs ran in the last hour? Did any of them fail? How many workers are running? And what about only the jobs that match a particular tag? Let's solve this by installing Laravel Horizon, a dashboard for your […]

  • Failed Jobs 10/05/2019
    So far, we've reviewed the "happy path" for a job, but what if an error or exception is thrown along the way? If you don't specify a maximum number of tries for your queue worker, the job will retry over and over again. In this episode, we'll learn how to fix this by creating a […]
