Lexus totally made a hoverboard! Like, we're talking a hoverboard that's straight out of Back to the Future Part II! And no, we don't mean the movie prop!
The transportation manufacturer built a real-life FUNCTIONING hoverboard! It's literally a skateboard. Without any wheels. That floats. That you can ride. And we CAN'T even.

As of right now, it's only a prototype — powered by superconductors, magnets, and other fancy sciencey gadget things — so unfortunately, Perezcious readers, it's not exactly for sale (yet).
BUT you can check it out in this cool video (below)!

As expected, Nike announced last night that they are in fact selling Marty McFly's Back to the Future II shoes.
Over the next 10 days Nike will be auctioning off 1500 pairs of the Nike Mag 2011 on eBay with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.
The first pair was auctioned off Thursday night at the Montalban Theater and went for a whopping $37,500. The winner was British rapper Tinie Tempah.
If you're hoping to get a pair for yourself, you better have deep pockets. As of Friday afternoon bids ranged between $5000 and $6000 and there's still 8 hours left before the auction ends.
At least all the money's going to a good cause!
