At the time we didn’t know how legitimate this project was, but now we have a much closer look at the very real hoverboard, and it’s pretty slick.

Lexus has just unveiled a batch of videos showing the hoverboard in action, and there’s even an entire hoverpark that it can be used in where professional skateboarders have got pretty good at riding it.
