Lexus Hoverboard – Slide With Ross McGouran
Lexus Hoverboard Slide Project have just released some pretty amazing footage of their Hoverboard Project featuring Skate Pharm Team Rider Ross McGouran. We have to take our hats off to Ross as this looks like an absolute nightmare to ride.
According to Lexus: “The hoverboard is constructed from an insulated core, containing HTSLs (high temperature superconducting blocks). These are housed in cryostats – reservoirs of liquid nitrogen that cool the superconductors to -197°C. The board is then placed above a track containing permanent magnets. When the board is cooled to its operating temperature the track’s magnetic flux lines are ‘pinned’ into place, maintaining the hover height of the board.”
Get all that? All we know is that Ross is the Boss!
