😱😂😳 According to Cadie at Business Insider, they're testing the hoverboard in Barcelona this summer. Adding to our Future of Transportation collection.

@rrhoover No joke, I spit out my coffee. Luckily, the coffee comes with my co-working membership and is free but is still a pain to clean up.

Vaporware projects like this are the newest trend with marketing execs. Just like Google Glass became a joke this will undoubtably never materialize.

@to you may be right... but we all want to BELIEVE. 🙏

@rrhoover @to why should we not expect at least a few prototypes? This isn't an early stage startup, it's Lexus.

@andythegiant @to and I wouldn't say Google Glass is/was a joke. The tech is still impressive and will be adapted into different VR/AR applications for sure.

@to Agreed, it's just a content piece in their series "Amazing in Motion". Scroll down to see their other hyper-fictional projects: http://www.lexus-int.com/amazing...

I know a guy called Marty McFly that will love this... seriously impressive concept... now it's just matter of figuring out when...

There has got to be magnets under the concrete or something.
Irving Torres@irvingtorresyc · Freelance Designer
@zolihonig Yes that was exactly what I was going to comment on. In order for magnetic levitation to work, you need a special magnetic track so this can't be used on regular sidewalk or roads.

@zolihonig Yep ... Disappointing: "Operated like a skateboard, the Slide doesn’t require batteries or a power supply but does need magnets on a rail embedded in the ground to work" - http://www.itworld.com/article/2...
