来试试雷克萨斯的悬浮滑板

Riding the Lexus hoverboard in Spain

So, this is a Lexus commercial.
这是雷克萨斯推出的视频广告
You might wonder
你可能想知道
Why a car company is using a hoverboard in one of its ads.
为什么一家汽车公司要在广告中使用悬浮滑板
Is Lexus planning to make hoverboards now?
难道雷克萨斯现在打算生产悬浮滑板吗?
No shock! It’s just another marketing stunt.
并不是!这仅仅是另一个营销噱头
But the hoverboard you see is very real.
但你看到的悬浮滑板是非常真实的
It’s actually levitating and you can totally ride it.
它真的是悬浮的 并且完全可行驶
But, is it the transportation of the future?
然而 这会成为未来新型代步工具吗?
Probably not!
大概不会!
雷克萨斯悬浮滑板
So, for like the last two decades,
在过去的二十年中
We’ve been teased with the existence of the functional hoverboards.
我们一直对功能性悬浮滑板能否实现很感兴趣
Back to the Future Part II
在《回到未来2》里
gave us a glimpse of what a hoverboard may look like in the year 2015.
我们可一窥2015年的悬浮滑板可能会是怎样的
Director Robert Zemeckis further fueled our imaginations
导演罗伯特‧泽米基斯进一步激发了我们的想像
By claiming that they used real hoverboards in the film,
他宣称在电影里使用的是真的滑板
And that the only thing stopping these things from being mass-produced
但唯一阻止这些滑板大规模生产的
was concerned parent groups.
就是母公司
But that’s not true at all. They didn’t exist.
但这不是真的 因为悬浮滑板并不存在
Last year, Funny or Die trolled the internet
去年有一期“不搞笑就去死”很火
with Christopher Lloyd, Tony Hawk and random celebrities
节目中克里斯托弗·洛伊德 托尼·霍克等名人
riding a fake hoverboard called the Hover
滑着一种叫“Hover”的假悬浮滑板
which they swore up and down was true.
他们发誓驾驶的是真的悬浮滑板
And that was also not real!
但这也不是真的!
So, when Lexus released its first hoverboard teaser earlier this summer,
因此 当雷克萨斯在今年夏天初发布首款悬浮滑板的预告片时
I, along with the rest of the internet, was super skeptical.
我之前与网上的其他人一样对此表示怀疑
It looked so real. But Lexus out of all companies?
它看起来很真实 但是为什么除了雷克萨斯外其它公司都没有做?
And then we were invited to see the thing in person.
后来我们被邀请亲自去看悬浮滑板
The whole thing felt a little bit weird.
这个东西整体看起来有点古怪
[MUSIC]
[音乐]
In a beach town, about 45 minutes away from Barcelona,
在一个距离巴塞罗那45分钟车程的海滩小镇
Lexus built an entire skate park, or a hover park if you will,
雷克萨斯建造了一整座滑板公园 或者可以说是悬浮公园
that acted as the site for its commercial.
作为其广告拍摄地
And yeah, this park was built just for the hoverboard, which does exactly what you think.
是的 这座公园是专门为悬浮滑板而建造的 就像你想的一样
It hovers off the ground like a proper hoverboard,
它就像是真正的悬浮滑板一样的拖离地面
But as I’m sure you’ve guessed, there are some big caveats,
但我肯定你已经猜到了一些重要的说明
Like the track it needs to run on, which is crucial to how the thing works at all.
例如轨道 这对滑板的运作是至关重要的
Inside the board are rolls of superconductors.
滑板内部装备了成卷的超导体
A special property of these type two superconductors is that
这两种超导体的一个特殊性质是
When they’re cooled down to a critical temperature,
当它们冷却到临界温度时
They exhibit properties that alter and manipulate any magnetic field around them.
可以改变和控制周围磁场
Therefore, the board must be ridden above highly engineered track
因此 滑板必须滑在高度设计化的轨道上
That’s carefully embedded with magnets
该轨道被精心嵌入磁铁
Strong enough to hold the board and the rider
足以使它们悬浮
Normally, the track is hidden under the hover part.
通常 轨道隐藏在悬浮部分下方
The board must be resting upon a portion of that same track
用液氮冷却滑板时
When being cooled with liquid nitrogen,
必须停留在相应部分的轨道上
Which essentially programs it to levitate at a certain height.
本质上是让它悬停在空中某一特定高度
After this process is complete, the board can be brought over to the park
这一步骤完成后 可以带滑板去公园
and will hover above the track at roughly the same height about four centimeters.
滑板会以大约4厘米的高度漂浮在轨道上方
This technology isn’t actually that new.
这项技术其实并不是新的
It’s a process called flux pinning
叫做磁通钉扎
and we’ve seen people do some fun things with this on a small scale before.
我们以前也见过有人小规模地应用这项技术
But now, that is being applied to a hoverboard. What’s that actually like to ride?
但是现在 它被使用到悬浮滑板上 滑在上面是什么感觉呢?
It’s hard!
很难!
It’s not as easy as riding a skateboard where all four wheels are on the ground.
这并不像滑着4个轮子都着地的滑板那样简单
The magnetic track in the ground lines up vertically with the center of the board.
地面的磁场轨道与滑板中心垂直排列
So, it’s kind of like you’re on a tight rope.
这就好像站在一根紧绷的绳子上
And if your balance isn’t perfectly distributed on this thing,
所以如果你不是平均施力在整个滑板上
You end up scraping the ground with the undersides of the board.
到头来滑板底部会擦到地面
It took me like 15 minutes just to glide a few feet.
我花了大约15分钟才滑了几英尺
So yeah, no shot I was going to ride around the park
所以 是的 我没办法像马蒂·麦克弗莱在《回到未来2》里那样
Like Marty Mcfly did in Back to the Future Part 2.
在公园附近滑来滑去
Luckily though, I had a chance to speak with pro skater Ross McGowan,
还好我有机会和职业滑板运动员罗斯·麦高恩交谈
The guy featured in the commercial.
他就是在广告里出现的那个人
– So you’ve been skating for 15, 20 years. – It’s 20 years, yeah.
– 你玩滑板玩了15到20年了? – 是 20年了
And how long did it take you to get to master?
你用了多长时间才精通悬浮滑板的?
In a sense that you could ride around without scraping?
感觉你可以不让滑板刮到地?
Yeah, I mean, often that’s been like 5, 6 months, I’m trying to,
是的 过程大概会需要5-6个月时间 我一直在努力
So even now, I can go down this straight line, even some corners,
所以即使到现在 虽然我可以沿着直线往前滑 甚至是转弯
Just scrapes a bit but you can ride yourself as quick enough.
还是会有点擦到地 但能滑的够快了
So you don’t fall off, you can feel it under your feet,
所以你不会掉下去 可以感觉到它在你脚下
Feel that speed sport, right?When you try it.
当你滑的时候 能感受那种速度感吧?
– Yeah! Yeah! – Just feeling of some invisible air rail thing is what feels like to me.
– 是的! – 对我来说 就像某种无形的空气轨道一样
So, riding the hoverboard is very difficult.
所以 滑悬浮滑板太难了
And besides that, another major problem with this thing
除此之外 悬浮滑板面临的另一个重大问题
is that it needs to be constantly cooled with liquid nitrogen.
就是它需要经常地用液氮冷却
And when it was as hot as it was outside that day in Spain,
当滑板的温度跟西班牙当天的室外天气一样热的时候
we got ten or fifteen minutes on the board before it had to be refilled,
每隔10到15分钟里面就需要添加液氮
a process itself that takes another ten or fifteen minutes.
添加的过程本身就另外需要10到15分钟
At this point, I gotta wonder why this thing even exists.
基于这点 我很困惑这个东西为什么会存在
Lexus hoverboard isn’t actually a product.
实际上雷克萨斯的悬浮滑板并不是一款产品
It’s just a special effect in a car commercial.
它只是汽车广告中的一个特殊效果
It’s part of series Lexus refers to as Amazing in Motion.
是雷克萨斯系列的一部分 被称为“Amazing in Motion”
which has used lots of flashy props before,
这当中用了许多华丽的道具
large mechanical puppets dancing through the streets of Madrid,
巨大的机械木偶在马德里街头跳舞
light suits flying through Kuala Lumpur. And even will.i.am.
轻装在吉隆坡飞行 甚至请到will.i.am
And my voice is being trapped by a laser.
我的声音被激光困住了
[SINGING OOH]
[唱ooh]
The difference is that you’d never expect to own
区别在于 你永远无法期待你的车子有
what is essentially a gigantic guitar hero-looking level for your car or an LED light suit.
如此雄伟的外表或者LED大灯套装
You sure as hell would want a hoverboard though.
你肯定会想要一个悬浮滑板
Fortunately, there are companies like Hendo that are actually working on levitation technology
幸运的是 像Hendo这样的公司正在研究悬浮技术
with ambitions beyond marketing.
它们有横扫市场的野心
But right now, Lexus hasn’t brought us any closer to being Marty McFly.
但现在 雷克萨斯并没有让我们更接近马蒂·麦克弗莱
Maybe that’s just as well considering the insane limitations of the Lexus hoverboard.
也许是因为雷克萨斯悬浮滑板有很多限制
You need lots of money to build a track, gallons and gallons of liquid nitrogen on hand,
你需要大量金钱来建造一条轨道 手头上要备有很多液氮
and five months of training just to master your balance.
5个月的训练就只是为了锻炼平衡感
So the next time a car company promises you a little bit back to the future-style science fiction,
所以下次当一家汽车公司承诺让你感受《回到未来》的科幻气息时
you might wanna limit your expectations and just tell them this,
你可能会收起你的期望 告诉他们
“Why don’t you make like a tree and get out of here?”
“你最好乖乖的给我滚出去”
