Twenty-six years after Robert Zemeckis' Back to the Future II showed the world of 2015 rife with hoverboards and instant pizza that actually tastes good, and one of those things has become a reality. Lexus just released a video for their newest project: a hoverboard. Keep in mind while watching this that everything they're doing in this video is real; this is not a concept video.
Now, there are some limitations: according to Lexus, the skate park is lined with tracks of permanent magnetic rails that help the board stay afloat, so unless your streets are lined with these rails, it may take a while to ride one of these babies to work. Still, this is an awesomely huge step, and according to Lexus Chief Engineer Haruhiko Tanahashi, "there is no such thing as impossible, it's just a matter of figuring out how."
