It’s not actually a hoverboard but it will
feel like one if you learn how to master it. I’m here with Robert Bigler the Founder of Hoverboard technologies. So what is this device. How does it work? Well the Hoverboard is a one-wheeled platform,
similar to a skateboard, that has a motor in the wheel, that react to very very subtle
tilting of the board. So it electronically delivers the experience of like surfing on
land. So let’s give it a shot? So the Hoverboard is a little tough to ride.
Was that the plan? Yea, the Hoverboard is like a sport and it’s
an electronic vehicle. It looks so easy to ride but the big deception about the Hoverboard
is when you see people riding it elegantly and smoothly. That everyone thinks you can
just jump on the Hoverboard and ride away. But it’s not that way. It’s an earned experience.
It’s similar to learning how to one ski, water ski, or learning how to snowboard. But after
that, it’s a phenomenal one. So it’s fun and it’s actually a little bit
more rewarding because it’s not easy enough for anyone. It’s almost like a hipster hoverboard. So who do you expect to sell this to? There’s really nothing, really like this on
the market place and some one who wants a challenge, a physical challenge, but also
someone who identifies with the thrill of land-based sport. The Hoverboard will show up on Kickstarter
on September 17th and it will finish it’s campaign on October 21st which is actually
the date when Marty McFly went to the future to try his real hoverboard that got everyone
excited about this thing.
