Hoverboard trend might be here to stay. For several reasons, one might think twice before buying a hoverboard. The first should be safety. You must think: “Why on earth would I ride a motorized self-balancing scooter if I can’t even ride a skateboard?”
Another is that belief that hoverboards are just a fad, a passing trend or a gift for 2015 Christmas. Let’s explore:
A fast and eco-friendly way to travel
We might not be aware yet, but the hoverboard trend offers the ideal motorized vehicle to replace a motorbike. Think of a go-kart that you can ride while standing up, which is also portable and easily rechargeable. Currently, the battery of a hoverboard does not last more than a couple of hours. But just like any technology, that is bound to change in the upcoming years.
Imagine a hoverboard that could travel for 100 miles. Why wouldn’t that be possible? Perhaps current hoverboards cannot endure such a trip. However, it is a matter of time until someone comes up with a design whose motor withstands long-distance journeys.
Speed is always a concern because hoverboards offer less stability than standard vehicles. But when compared to Segways and motorbikes, hoverboards’ long-lasting batteries are in no way a boundary.
Hoverboard Trend Basics: Portable and Easy to transport
Hoverboards are very light and easy to move around, compared to a bicycle or a car. Many come with their custom cases, and they can be stored away easily. Hoverboards fit beneath an office desk, in the trunk of a car, even in a gym locker.
Hoverboards are bound to become a seamless medium for transport
They only need to gain the trust of investors and true visionaries who can see their potential. Some people might even refrain from buying a car. More so if they can move around in a hoverboard that they can carry around on their backs.
The best hoverboards go for less than you think
If you had to choose between buying a car and a new gaming system for the same price, which one would you choose? Most hoverboards are way cheaper than the new next-gen gaming console.
Even today, when hoverboards are at their first stages, and they are still seen as toys. However, hoverboards are cheaper than most electronic gadgets that achieve so much less. Moving around is an important part of life, and having a readily available medium for transport is a true asset. What’s more, it can boost your capacity for doing work and being wherever you need to be.
