WATCH: Lexus' Magnet-Powered Hoverboard Debuts

“She was gifted in everything, but we lost her to this illness.”

Where this hoverboard is going, you won't need roads ... just a lot of intense magnets.

Lexus has revealed the inner workings of a hoverboard it teased in June, and while it may not be the "Back to the Future"-style transportation many were hoping for, it is a cool piece of technology, NBC News reports.

The "Slide," as the company calls it, works using an extreme version of the way two magnets repulse one another if they're aligned correctly. Lexus put together a special skate park in Barcelona, Spain, to show off the Slide — but hidden underneath the concrete are a number of pre-laid tracks that the hoverboard will travel along.
