It's the year 2015, the 'future' that Marty McFly visited in the filmBack To The Future 2, and Lexus would like to do its part to make Marty's future the reality, with the development of a hoverboard. The company has unveiled a teaser video showing the recreational board prototype that they have designed. Take a look above...

The board was created by an independent contractor for Lexus and it does indeed work, however there is a big caveat – the board only works in a controlled environment. The system uses magnets to create a repelling force, which in turn keeps the board hovering across the ground, but this requires the floor to have magnets underneath it. So we are still a little way away from hovering down a neighbourhood street, but we are certainly one step closer.
