Every since Marty McFly jumped on a gravity-defying hovering skateboard in Back to the Future, Part 2, we’ve been fascinated by this futuristic transportation device. Now, apparently, the hoverboard is real!
Lexus has just announced the SLIDE, a real, working rideable hoverboard that floats over a special surface.
