      Engineers at Japanese car company Lexus have been working with experts in super-conductive technology to create one of the most advanced hoverboards the world has ever seen.

       

      The hoverboard uses magnetic levitation with liquid nitrogen-cooled superconductors and permanent magnets to give the hoverboard "frictionless movement" of a kind that had been thought impossible, according to Lexus.

       

      "It’s the perfect example of the amazing things that can be achieved when you combine technology, design and imagination,”said Mark Templin, executive vice president of Lexus International.
