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.

  • Make It Sticky 11/07/2018
    Consider the common example of a heading that should remain fixed to the top of the page until the next section becomes visible. Traditionally, developers have resorted to JavaScript to allow for this. However, these days, we can tackle it with basic CSS. And when I say basic, I mean two properties and you're done.
