Hoverboards are a modern and technologically advanced form of transport, which is gradually gaining wide popularity. Its advantages are obvious, since first of all we are talking about easy maintenance, as well as compact dimensions and light weight. Hoverboard is powered by an electric battery, has a fairly simple mechanism, and even a child can control it. Hoverboards cannot fully replace vehicles that will help you get to school or work. In this regard, they are still inferior to electric scooter.

Principle of operation

A hoverboard is a fairly simple device that consists of complex elements that are highly technologically advanced. It is a small board made of metal and plastic with two wheels on the sides. At the same time, there are no physical controls in the form of a handlebar. Its function is taken over by special gyroscopic sensors that work smoothly, tracking the current position in relation to the plane on which they move.

The control consists in the slopes. The user’s tilt forward – sets the electric motor in motion (forward); the tilt backward gives reverse gear, respectively. Whereas a deviation to the right or left side causes the hoverboard to turn.

The main thing is to wear a helmet, knee pads, armrests, and elbow pads. They will protect the user in case of a fall, reducing the risk of serious injury to zero.

The battery deserves special attention. Choose a hoverboard taking into account the quality of the battery.


In general, the trend in the development of hoverboards is certainly pleasing. Models are evolving: they get more capacious batteries, more stylish and durable cases, have wireless interfaces.

In the future, the active introduction of advanced designs with a large selection of parameters is expected. First of all, manufacturers are trying to increase the power reserve, the main thing is not to exceed the mass, which is already quite large.
