Hoverboard

Although it’s not quite what you’d expect when you hear the word hoverboard, this Hoverboard design by a Silicon Valley based company (properly named Hoverboard Technologies) is still an exciting creation.

This device has one big wheel in the middle of a skateboard-like surface, that allows the board to travel up to 16 mph. It charges in just 16 minutes, and has a range of nearly 10 miles. It’s easy to ride, as you simply tilt forward to move forward and tilt back to slow down. The included smartphone app monitors your speed, sounds, the LED lights and how much of a charge the device has before it runs out of juice. The device is also loaded with security features, including alerts sent straight to your smartphone when it’s too far away from you, and a shutdown mechanism that can be engaged by the company should you call to report it stolen. Most importantly for such a new technology, the hoverboard is highly modular, so it will be easy to upgrade it in the future. [Purchase]
