HoverBoard

2

Everyone wants a hoverboard for Christmas , so I was told in USA after watching Casey Neistat on youtube go on his hoverboard everytime he had to go somewhere.  So what is a hoverboard ?  How much is it and does it really work , I hear you asking.  Some places are selling it for as much as $600 in USA but I know that you can get them from China , the exact same thing for only $300 USD.

But I just read a few minutes ago that the cops in New York city has confirmed that HoverBoards are illegal to have it on the roads in New York City.  So dear Casey isn’t gonna be able to use it on the road no more.  But not to worry he has another skateboard that he uses but that would be for another day and another story.  Note that if you are caught riding it in New York, you can be fined up to $500 USD, also in UK.   But thus far in Canada, no problems and in a small town like ours, I doubt there will be a law about it.  So Canadians buy away for Christmas.

But how easy is it to maneuver this beast?   I think it takes some practice and of course you may scrap your knees and fall flat on your face a few times but overall, I don’t think it should be really hard to learn to use it especially if you were a young person.

Forget pedaling or skating to work or class, there’s a new transportation king in town (and no, it’s not a Segway). If you’ve been out and about in the past months, there’s no doubt you’ve seen these self-balancing scooters popping up like crazy—and the MonoRover R2 is the creme-of-the-crop. Equipped with sensors that detect even the slightest of movements in your feet and ankles, it’s intuitive, safe, and lightweight. This hot two-wheeler can be yours absolutely free of charge–and it’s as easy as a simple entry!
