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.
[ Video: LOL! Watch Newt Gingrich Review The Apple Watch! ]
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)!

Tinie Tempah! You just paid $37,500 for a pair of limited edition Nike Mag 2011 shoes. What are you going to do with them?
NOT WEAR THEM!
The British rapper says he will never wear his uber expensive Marty McFly shoes, not even to try them on.
He is however, getting them autographed by Michael J. Fox, so that's cool.

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!

Get ready for a BIG announcement from Nike!
After a year of speculation, the athletic company is holding a press conference tonight in Hollywood where they are expected to unveil Marty McFly's self-lacing shoes.
Those who were invited to the big event were called at midnight and flown to El Lay TODAY. When they arrived to their hotel rooms, a box was waiting in the room along with a recorded message from Doc Brown on an iPod shuffle. The message said:
“Welcome to Los Angeles. If my calculations are correct, over the next 24 hours you are about to see some SERIOUS SH*T!”
Inside the box was the actual invite, which read "IT’S ABOUT TIME…an unveiling that could change the course of time" along with a pair metal shield glasses.
Nike also left some mid 80′s candy, a throwback Pepsi and a copy of Back To The Future.

Check out the trailer (above) for the closest thing we're likely to get to a Back To The Future sequel anytime soon!
We are totally nerding out over this video game…especially because they got Christopher Lloyd to return as the voice of Doc Brown!
We're not sure who this guy is playing Marty McFly, but he sounds A LOT like Michael J. Fox! We're impressed!
Are U excited for some interactive Back To The Future?
