It’s 2015 and Here’s Your Hoverboard
It’s 2015, and thanks to Lexus, there is a hoverboard. You just need some liquid nitrogen, super conductive rare earth magnets, 1.21 gigawatts, and a little plutonium (okay, scratch the last 2 items). Though very cool (and literally so), the hoverboard only operates on a closed track, which seems to be modus operandi of all car commercials. You’ll never be able to take this into the street, unless of course the street was paved in neodymium magnets. Even so, no one believed we would really have a hoverboard in 2015, as prophesied by Doc Brown and Marty McFly. And best of all, you’ll soon be able to get your self-lacing Nike shoes to wear while riding the Lexus hoverboard!
Is it a ground breaking new aplication of sience: No
Is it something no one ever came up with before: No
But so wasn’t Arduino when it came out, 3D-Printing when it got cheap or the cars that Tesla builds today.
It’s not about being new – it’s about everyone being aware that it is possible and starting to think out of the box what else could be done with it
