The cool science behind how the Lexus hoverboard works

We were teased a hoverboard. We saw a hoverboard. And we even rode the hoverboard. So how does Lexus’ hoverboard actually work? This video breaks down the science behind it and like all things magical in science, it’s the lovely work of magnets. We can see how the polarity of the magnetic track is set up and how the board is made of superconductor blocks with a liquid nitrogen cooling system to achieve hover.
