A hoverboard (or hover board) is a levitating board used for personal transportation. Since it was first described in science-fiction, many attempts have been made to invent a functioning hoverboard.
Hoverboards have a platform between the two wheels where the rider will stand. The direction and speed of the board is controlled based on how far forward or back the individual leans. An internal mechanism called a gyroscope will assist in maintaining balance by adjusting the tilt of the board. Also inside the unit are microprocessors that regulate the power output going into the wheels determining the speed. Average hoverboard speeds are around ten to twelve kilometers per hour, but can go up to 15km/h.

One concern with hoverboards is safety. There is a bit of a learning curve at the beginning to understand how to shift your body weight to successfully move your hoverboard, but usually you get the hang of it within 5 to 10 minutes. We always recommend helmets and protective gear like elbow pads and knee pads when operating a hoverboard.
