The History of The Hoverboard

Appearing on our screens in the early years, the hoverboard is the dream of kids everywhere. Its magical ability to take you seamlessly from one place to another, completely unhindered by the surface on which you travel. Seeing someone hover around a pond on a child’s converted scooter could have sparked an idea for someone to create the hoverboard.  It’s only right that in 2016 we have come a step closer.

For real, hoverboards do exist! Don’t get too excited. However, there does need to be a fair amount of things in place for it to ‘hover’, as such. Lexus famously made hoverboard for their advert, as part of an ad series to do with technology. Their board needed the metal track to run above and a healthy serving of liquid nitrogen now and then, it’s not quite as practical as Marty’s just yet. The other hoverboard being worked on is a bit better, needing only a metal skatepark to run above. Sadly, there is no way to control the direction of travel on this board, but it’s a step in the right direction.

The hoverboards that are two-wheeled, self-balancing kind. . Granted, it got a lot of attention, but apparently no-one quite knew what it was going to become. In the early months of a modern world, they hit the Western world and exploded to fame with a few clever product placements.

The viral nature of Segway Board caused the popularity of it to skyrocket. It was on everyone who was anyone’s snap chat story and Instagram page. In case you didn’t have a hoverboard, you were lagging behind, which of course meant good things for the importers of the high in demand, short in supply people transporters. They offer accessories for hoverboards here too: http://hoverboardselectric.com/hoverboard-accessories/.
As it is such simple work for such a high pick up, hoverboard sales sites sprung up all over the place. You could fill in a word reference with the names individuals were giving them a Scoot Boards and balance Foot susually, hoverboards, notwithstanding the evident certainty that wheels of them are immovably planted in the ground.

Where can I buy a hoverboard if I need one?

As mentioned, the choices you have on where to get them are near enough endless. If you were to enquire into every seller of hoverboards, you are in for a long evening! The main difference between the resellers is prices, varying from $300 to $1800. Price differences are often justified in many different ways, from claiming to have the fastest in the world. In reality, every board is the same. There are sometimes aesthetic differences like wheels or casings, but they all come from the same factory. The gap in pricing is different size attempts at getting as big a markup as possible. You should aim at getting as close to $300 as you can for the standard hoverboard any lower there is a possibility you are being scammed (especially below $250) and any higher you are paying too much!

The best results I’ve had is with comparison seller websites, as they look at safety and all prices of the hoverboard sellers, making sure the place is trusted and secure and looking out for the best deals. My recommendation is this cheapest hoverboards finder, as they have strong social media presence on Twitter and Instagram with a lot of history. Also, a lot of their links go to Amazon sellers, which are extremely well trusted. You can buy boards on there for as little as $300, and they have lots of different models to choose from.
