Very observant.
It looked like it took some effort to get it going uphill on the half pipe floor.
On the flat floor it seemed to be steady and not want to slow down. Two different articles said the engineers had to guard the reporter taking the ride to keep him from going off the edge. Sort of a set interactive speed.

Notice on the remote control boxes they can be started from a standstill and turned or moved in any direction. Apparently at steady speed. It seems to take some hand interaction to get them up to sync speed.

Let's Race!

And unfortunately I think that's all they would be good for


While I freely admit I'm now more of a sidewalk surfed as I get older

just thinking of trying my first kick flip on this thing scares the cap outta me

U just know it's not cheap and one little Wipeout and yiu don't just pick it up and try again

U replace it or repair it. And u just know that's gonna cost

I see it more as a novelty or as a down hill race thing, like snowboarding on x games.

The prototype unit they were using looks bulkier and more fragile than the drawings of the proposed model for delivery
which I think is solid state with an aluminum shell.

I will wait for the cheaper Mattel model.

Someone needs to work on the Olympic committee rules.

I dont see this going main stream mainly because there has to be a steel or copper surface for the board to work, and lets make a example

4 small hover board motors seems to carry a normal person around 200lb

The average weight of a car is 4000lb

so if each motor holds 50lbs then we would need 80 Hover Motors to life a normal car not counting the weight of the people inside!!!!

What about electro magnetics in our autos?
It would be an extra cushion before the other car hits yours.
