Hoverboard Takes You on a Brilliant Ride to the Future of Personal Electric Mobility

Hoverboard Takes You on a Brilliant Ride to the Future of Personal Electric Mobility

Thanks to the new-age scooters and skateboards, personal transportation doesn’t look or sound that old-school anymore. Urban travelers can now enjoy their everyday journey to work in a more sophisticated way. From smart bike wheels to unicycle electric scooters, I feel we are on the verge of a major transportation shift. Only this time, the mode of travel seems to take us on a ride to the future. Ideas that were confined to the TV screen till date are now being applied in our day to day lifestyle which is great for people like you and me who don’t prefer riding the public transports all the time. If you consider me, I would do anything to get rid of a subway or a bus ride. Riding on a skateboard or a unicycle sounds more “free” to me. Even better than a car drive at times when I am willing to go for a weekend joy ride!

This is exactly why when I first came across the Hoverboard on Kickstarter, I couldn’t stop looking at the campaign twice. The reason is obvious – It’s not just an electric vehicle; it’s the closest thing on earth you can compare to an actual Hoverboard!

Personal Electric Mobility Evolved!

Now, if you’ve been following the latest innovations we have had in technology, hoverboards aren’t a new concept. But giving a real shape to such a sci-fi concept cannot happen in a day. You need time to evolve and the team behind Hoverboard is undoubtedly trying to make their way towards that spectacular innovation, one day at a time.

This is a one-wheeled, gyro-stabilized personal electric vehicle which has just one mode of contact with the ground and will make you feel like you’re hovering on the streets every time you decide to take your ride on it. Only six people on earth have had their exposure to this Hoverboard and now it’s your turn to try it out.

Konstantin Othmer, the fifth buyer of the Hoverboard has said, “The Hoverboard is a work of passion that is really in its own category…much like a Ferrari or Tesla.”

With LED Lighting and Bluetooth Speakers

Coming to the features, Hoverboard delivers the MOST POWER of any comparable PEV (Personal Electric Vehicle). The center of the vehicle has a removable module which contains the Direct-Drive, Industrial Class BLDC (Brushless Direct-Current) servomotor, bearings and position sensors. This vehicle is designed to be personalized so that you get to make your Hoverboard feel more like yours every day. You can use the corresponding mobile app to control your Hoverboard.

The features you’ll get to enjoy are – Activation,  Checking charge level and battery health, Setting Speed Limit (for each setup user), Locking your Hoverboard, Logging riding data, max-speed, avg-speed, distance traveled, etc, Protecting your Hoverboard from theft, Customizing the lighting and LED Bar Graphs as well as Playing Music and customizing sound. Controlling the Hoverboard while you’re on a ride is super easy too! You just need to tilt forward to accelerate, tilt back to brake or go the other way. It’s that simple.

What I love about the Hoverboard is the ground sensing sonar which keeps the board parallel to the ground. Not only this, your glowing Hoverboard can charge itself in less than 16 minutes. Starting from a pre-order price of $3775, it’s time you book your Hoverboard ride now! Happy Gadgeting!
