Real hoverboard? naah

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.

  • Learn Vuex With Me: Part 1 20/09/2017
    Far and away, the most frequently requested subject material at Laracasts is a review of Vuex. However, I've been hesitant to oblige in the last year. I'm not sold yet. As such, these next few videos will be a bit unique. Rather than serving as an endorsement from an "expert," I'll be taking the role […]

    Our tests are showing that everything from the AJAX endpoint and forward should work as expected; however, we haven't yet touched the front-end side of this feature. Let's begin writing the necessary Vue logic to allow the thread's creator to mark any reply as "best."

    Our next feature to implement is one that allows the creator of a thread to mark any reply as the best answer. Let's begin by implementing the underlying server-side logic. Once complete, in the following episode, we can move on to the front-end side of things.

  • We Need a Regression Test 06/09/2017
    Now that we're properly generating incrementing slugs for threads that have the same title, we should take note of a few edge cases that could break things. If we find a bug along the way, we'll write a regression test to reproduce it, and then refactor as needed to return everything to green. View the […]
