It looks hard to ride, yes. But it works. Lexus did it.

It looks like it is probably some type of quantum levitation and usually there is also dry ice involved to help create a super conductor.

No no, first to debut it, last to implement it

What a genius marketing campaign.

Lexus has reached millions upon millions of people and those were just with the tiny teasers. This goes hand in hand with Lexus' goal of reaching more younger buyers since it is the tech savvy millennial that will be drooling over this hoverboard. All of the tech sites and even MSM have been following Project Slide and its still going strong. This is definitely a Golden Opportunity for Lexus.

I do remember a CL member calling this ridiculous (its ok some people don't understand business and marketing).

I honestly would've done without the GS-F, I think it would've gotten more brownie points for focusing solely on the hoverboard and not trying to sell something else. But its already there and still a great piece of AD.

You got to have some bragging rights.... Imaging pulling next to an M5 in the GS-F and showing the hoverboard? Now you're cool again

actually pretty cool to see it in action. Looks super hard since you have to balance your weight on something so narrow
