The Hoverboard is a simply and appropriately named single-wheel contraption, developed by Hoverboard Technologies, that legitimately offers the feeling and sensation of hovering. This board is mounted on top of a 10-inch wheel, and requires users to lean their bodies to accelerate, decelerate or perform turning motions.

This particular contraption is claimed to be faster as well as easier to charge than the One Wheel, which captured public attention last year. It's also quicker and easier to charge. It makes use of sonar technology for stability, and offers API connectivity.

The Hoverboard is powered by a 5,000 Watt motor and is capable of attaining a top speed of 26 km/h and a maximum range of 16 kilometres. These specs make it a fascinating addition to the field of futuristic vehicle innovations.
