A while back, Lexus released a short teaser video claiming that they had built the world’s first working Hoverboard. A lot of people at that time had doubts about this, but yesterday the car company revealed a longer video with people actually riding (and falling from) it.
The Video, filmed in a skatepark in Barcelona, shows the Pro-Skater Ross McGouran skating (hovering?) on the hoverboard, going down slopes, riding along handrails and attempting other stunts.
“I’ve spent 20 years skateboarding, but without friction it feels like I’ve had to learn a whole new skill, particularly in the stance and balance in order to ride the hoverboard. It’s a whole new experience,” said McGouran in a press statement.
The video is seriously amazing, check it out if you haven’t already. Other than that, Lexus also released a mini-documentary about the assembly of the hoverboard. You can check it out below:
