El Lexus Hoverboard vuela sobre Cubelles (Barcelona)

La historia continúa haciendo click aquí.

El monopatín volador de Marty McFly es algo que volvió loco a más de uno, pero fue hace menos de un año cuando Tony Hawk revolucionó las redes al aparecer con un invento similar dándose un paseo. Hubo una gran discusión de si era posible o no, de si saldría a la venta, en qué año, etc. y después de tanto revuelo Lexus ha dado un paso hacia delante y ha creado el Lexus Hoverboard. La marca de coches japonesa ya ha publicado el trailer, que se ha rodado en Cubelles (Barcelona), y está a punto de rodar el anuncio completo, motivo por el cual cerrarán el park de este mismo pueblo durante unos días.

Este monopatín, si es que se le puede llamar así, funciona con un sistema de levitación magnética y se mueve sobre unos imanes permanentes, es decir, que sólo se puede desplazar por lugares donde estén colocados esta especie de raíles de metal (al menos por ahora). El humo que desprende la tabla es debido a la refrigeración de estos imanes, que es con nitrógeno líquido.

En el vídeo parece que se mueva sobre cemento, pero ElPatín.com se ha acercado a las instalaciones donde están rodando este anuncio, y allí hemos podido observar que todos los lugares por donde se desplaza la tabla tienen esos imanes con forma de raíl. En el trailer, Lexus alardea de que todo es posible si sabes cómo hacerlo, y en esta ocasión el truco está en tapar con unos finísimos tablones de madera la zona en la que levita el patín. Han disimulado estos imanes por los que flota el Lexus Hoverboard para hacer creer que ya se puede volar libremente con un patín, pero todavía es demasiado pronto.

En cuanto al proyecto de este inmenso skatepark construido en Cubelles (Barcelona), no todo es lo que parece. La construcción comenzó hace cosa de un mes y desde entonces ha estado vigilado con seguridad privada las 24 horas del día. Además, el material empleado es madera muy fina y capas de cemento superficiales, por lo que no aguantaría ni un impacto de un patín tradicional de cuatro ruedas.

Fuentes relacionadas con el proyecto nos han asegurado que el diseño del lugar ha sido realizado por Ross McGouran (skater inglés patrocinado por Element, Vans, y más), y este sería probablemente el encargado de protagonizar el anuncio sobre esa tabla. Algunos trabajadores se han atrevido a probar el Hoverboard, pero casi ninguno lo ha controlado con éxito. Otro detalle de esta tabla es que los detalles están acabados en bamboo, pero el peso de este vehículo no es para nada ligero, ya que cada vez que alguien lo quiere desplazar en brazos tiene que hacer un esfuerzo considerable.

IMG_3549

El recorrido por el cual deberá pasar esta tabla voladora es el que podéis ver en la imagen superior, y el detalle más sorprendente no es el que vaya a realizar un pequeño salto, sino que pasará también por encima del agua sin ningún problema. Pese a lo todoterreno que parece ser el nuevo vehículo de Lexus, la marca nipona no ha fijado ningún precio ni fecha de venta al público porque no se sabe por dónde se podrá utilizar. Recordamos que sólo se puede usar sobre estos imanes, cosa que no encontraremos (de momento) en ningún paseo o calle convencional.

Adjuntamos algunas imágenes más del park, e iremos ampliando información tan pronto como la vayamos verificando.

THE NEW LEXUS HOVERBOARD FLIES OVER BARCELONA

 

Marty McFly’s flying board is something that made some people go crazy, but it was about a year ago when Tony Hawk disrupted social media when he appeared riding a similar invention. There was a big discussion about the possibilities of making it real, when could we ride something like that, or even how much would it be. After so many discussions, Lexus have made a step forward and they’ve created the Lexus Hoverboard. The Japanese car brand already posted the trailer that has been shot in Barcelona (Spain), and they are about to film the real commercial, which will imply the closing of the skatepark next to these extension for some days.

This new board uses a magnetic levitation to achieve amazing frictionless movement over permanent magnets, that means you can only move with it over those pieces of metal (at least by now). The smoke you can see in the video is due to the liquid nitrogen cooled superconductors that this vehicle uses.

The video shows how the Lexus Hoverboard moves over concrete, but ElPatín.com headed out to the facilities where they are shooting this commercial and we’ve been able to see this vehicle only goes over those magnetic rails. Lexus pointed out “It’s just a matter of figuring out how”, and this time the trick is hiding those metals with thin wooden plates that look like concrete. They’ve hidden them in order to make people think you can now fly with your skate wherever you want, but it’s too early.

IMG_3548

Regarding the project of the skatepark they’ve built in Cubelles (Barcelona, Spain), we have to say it’s not exactly what it seems. The construction started about a month ago and they’ve been controlling it with private security 24 hours a day. Moreover, the materials they’ve used are beyond weak. Everything is made out of wood and a thin layer of concrete, so it would never stand an actual 4-wheel skateboard doing tricks in there.

Some sources related to the construction of these facilities assured to ElPatín.com that the park has been designed by Ross McGouran (British skater sponsored by Element and Vans among others), and he’ll probably be the main character of this commercial. Different workers have tried the Hoverboard this week, but almost none of them could handle it. Another remarkable detail is that, although the details are made out of bamboo, this vehicle is not light at all. Every time somebody tries to move it from one place to another has to make a huge effort to lift it.

IMG_3549

The course where this board has to go through is the one you see on the image above, and the most surprising detail is not that the Lexus Hoverboard will have to jump on those ramps, but it will also have to cross that small pool without any problem. Despite it seems to be an all terrain vehicle, Lexus hasn’t set any price nor releasing date because they still don’t know where to use it outside of those facilities. We remind you this can only be used over those magnets, something you won’t find (by now) on a regular street, or avenue.

We are posting some other images of the park and we’ll update the information as soon as we check it. Stay tuned.
