Not a Hover Board, but pretty Functional!
IO Hawk - "Intelligent Personal Mobility Device"
Saw these in Vegas being demoed and letting people try them.
Not easy to step onto and use, but people seem to get the balance after a while. Just slight pressure on your feet steers and propels.
Eye catching lights on the back for safety, but looks cool when you whizz past! Top speed - 6mph.
Weighs only about 20 pounds so fits in backpack when not in use or when batteries are dead (battery life not stated)
A bit pricey though - $1800.
At the end of the day groups of people who were demoing them were heading to the buses, talking to each other, etc.
A weird scene!
Soon to become a common one?
