Hoverboard Alternatives: 2-wheel self-balancing electric scooter boards

Marty McFly’s ‘future’ in Back to the Future 2 and 3 sees hoverboards – a levitating and hovering version of the skate board, some propelled by turbo jets as common everyday consumer products. As we work closer to making this a reality, we have a few different options – a hoverboard prototype designed by Lexus and a miniature hoverboard by Hendo.

The most convincing result so far is Lexus’s Slide, however this hoverboard only works on specially designed skating parks with tracks of permanent magnets built into it. The hoverboard itself is high maintenance, requiring liquid nitrogen, super conductors and magnets to power it. The prototype is nothing more than a showcase of the company’s technical and technological prowess and a huge marketing campaign to sell more cars.

For something more commonly available, affordable and that works straight off; the 2-wheel self balancing electric scooter boards is the logical answer. It is hard to pin point the original 2 wheel self balancing electric scooter. So far, it’s origins has been traced back to Chic Robotics as described in Wired article, however since then there have been many clones of the same thing.
