Lexus Hoverboard: Works on the “Superconductor Principle” Allowing it to float above the Ground!

According to Steve Gourlay, the head of the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab’s Superconducting Magnet Group, superconductors have the ability to freeze the flux lines of the magnetic field. Once a high-temperature superconductor is too hot to work, the magnetic fields can pass through it without a hitch.

However, once you cool the superconductor to such an extent, that it ‘starts working’; the magnetic field lines that were passing through it will be caught in a mesh of sorts.

This will leave the superconductor attached to the magnetic field in a particular location. As long as you keep the superconductor cold enough, it’ll stay floating above the magnet while its eddy currents fight gravity to a draw.
