    Great Scott! It's 2015 And Hoverboards Finally Exist

    OK, so it's not perfect, but it's what Back to the Future fans have been waiting 26 years for.

    Let's be honest, if you were a kid in the late '80s or early '90s there was probably nothing you wanted more than Marty McFly's hoverboard from Back to the Future Part II...

    ...which he happened to pick up while traveling to the far distant future (aka the year 2015).

    Well now, thanks to Lexus, hoverboards exist....

    ...and, yes, you can actually ride them and bring out your inner-Marty McFly.

    The hoverboard floats with the use of liquid nitrogen-cooled superconductors and magnets.

    There is one catch: since the board relies on magnetic levitation to float, it needs to run on a magnetic track.

    But unlike Marty's hoverboard in BTTF II, this board actually floats on water.

    All I have to say is:
