Drive Wire: A Hoverboard That Doesn’t Hover


Turning now to sweet gear, we really, really want to try a Boosted Boards Hoverboard. Now, that’s its model name, not its description. Instead of hovering, it uses one central wheel to deliver a smooth ride. That wheel is driven at speeds up to 16 mph, and the board has a reported 10-mile range on a charge. It weighs 25 pounds, which seems like a lot, but you also get built-in speakers. So be careful… this could make you either the coolest or the worst person on the sidewalk.
