Watch This Skater Take The Lexus Hoverboard For A Spin

We wrote about the Hoverboard a few months ago, and now our friends at Lexus have released the latest footage of a professional skateboarder riding the board in Spain – while it’s not the smoothest of rides, and from what you can see in the video it doesn’t appear to be able to turn, it’s still very cool – the thing legitimately looks to be levitating.

And it is. Well it sort of is…

The guys at The Verge took a deeper look at the production of this ad and the Hoverboard, and unfortunately for us uncovered exactly how this board levitates.

We won’t ruin the video below with the details, but it’s slightly disappointing that you won’t be seeing this at your local skatepark any time soon.
