NEW YORK, N.Y. (WIVB) — Could future technology be ahead of Americans now? A brand new tease from Lexus suggests they’ve already developed viable hoverboard technology.
The hoverboard, which was first teased on Tuesday, is seen to be a stable product which could be available to consumers soon. Dubbed the Lexus SLIDE, the project is part of a series the company is releasing to highlight the company’s innovation and creativity.
Lexus is teasing consumers, releasing a short, 37-second video which only shows 16-seconds of the product. In the video, a rider steps on the hoverboard just before video cuts away, and it doesn’t appear to flinch from the rider’s weight.
The stationary board emits a hazy smoke, adding to the intrigue of how the product is powered. Lexus promises updates on the project in the weeks ahead. See the full video below, or click here if you’re an app user.
