If the Lexus Hoverboard still is boggling your mind, you're not alone; it's amazing that it exists or even works. But that's what makes the hoverboard great, it's made by a car company who threw incredible resources and brainpower behind a project that is pretty much the direct opposite of what they are. As this video shows, the science behind how it works is equally mind-bending, involving a magnetic field trapped in a superconductor, a technical and mechanical brain-child of levitation engineer Dietmar Berger and pioneer Dr. Ludwig Schultz, the men behind the dream. Needless to say, even with a video showing the hoverboard in action, it's still hard to believe the Lexus hoverboard is real.
