23 Dec HOVERBOARD, HOVER BOARD, SELF BALANCING SCOOTER, WHAT ARE THESE THINGS AND WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL?
Is it a Hover board, self balancing scooter or Segway? It seems there is no official name for these devices, we call them Hoverboards, but whatever you want to call them, they have burst in to the international market over the past few months trending higher than other popular goods such as Gopro etc…
This seems to be the evolution of personal transport. These electric powered self-balancing scooter, 2 wheels are the new cool, forget about trying to force your board to move they are the new skateboards. They are all over the place, from your favourite celebrity Instagram feeds to the biggest recent trend on twitter.
It is easy to ride the Hoverboard, all you need to do it to shift your weight in any direction you wish to and it will move towards that direction. If you lean forward or backwards it will move that direction. Leaning forward with one foot is basically your steering. There is no age limit for this electric self-balancing scooter.
Hoverboards uses the same technology that Segway uses, the only difference is Hoverboards have no handlebars. The gyro inside keeps you easily balanced, while the sensors read the riders intuitive movements and the electric motor spins the wheels in the direction and speed wanted.
This is definitely the hot birthday gift.
