|YaK:: What do you call that self-balancing two-wheel Chinese Segway-like Scooter Board Thing?||[Changes] [Calendar] [Search] [Index] [PhotoTags]|
The best reason to call them hoverboards is because some nerds get really emotional and strongly insist they're not hoverboards!
The Wired Magazine article by David Pierce:
And here is mine:
I love it!
I paid $500 to a friend John L. Sokol at Hacker Dojo for it. (He ordered it from someone in China for significantly less.) I did that because I've seen his used at Hacker Dojo by lots of people for over a month, so I know the ones he gets are sturdy, and the battery life is at least 2 hours.
I've seen "Smart Drifterz" for sale in Westfield Valley Fair mall in San Jose. The dude in the mall told me they went for $700, or $900 for the larger model (bigger wheels and plays music). I've also heard they're for sale for $1000 in malls, but I don't really know that. The web site http://smartdrifters.com/ today says $895 for the classic, $1195 for the grand.
