Many companies, including California-based Arx Pax, have launched exciting kickstarters to make the boards, and now Japanese Engineers at Lexus have decided to join in the pursuit of the perfect hoverboard. Lexus claims to be on the forefront of new technology. Their hoverboard uses "magnetic levitation with liquid nitrogen-cooled superconductors and permanent magnets to give the board 'frictionless movement.'" It appears this is what gives the boards a smoky steam around them. Which is kinda freakin' cool.
