While we are waiting for real hoverboards. One company says that riding on one wheel you can feel as if you are hovering above the ground. That is why they are releasing their Segway board. A board with a 10-inch wheel mounted on it that can steer back and forth.
This device is very like last year’s One Wheel, and the manufacturers understand this. Comparing their creation with One Wheel. UK Hoverboard Technologies claims that a single-wheel skateboard is faster, more maneuverable more practical.
They also report. That the skate has an API connection & uses sonar technology to maintain balance.
The 11-kilogram Hoverboard is equipped with a 5000 W motor, which is located in the center of the wheel. It can provide a top speed of 26 km / h and a range of 19 km. So charging the device takes 15 minutes. The sonar system keeps the board parallel to the ground and as a regenerative braking system. It produces extra energy during descents or decelerations.
The board has LED lighting built-in speakers to play music while driving. The LCD screen displays information for the user. All this uses about 10% of energy. Besides, there is also an application for Android and iOS. It works via a Bluetooth connection. It allows users to activate and lock their hoverboard check the battery level. So users can set speed limits. You can also use it to adjust the lighting, play audio files, and view travel data (speed, distance, etc.).
Hoverboard Technologies that their device aims for the max life cycle. All components used can be removed and replaced (or upgraded). Besides, from time to time the device connects to Hoverboard Technologies via Wi-Fi. This is done for notifications of possible updates and for security purposes. After a few days without checking the user data, the skateboard will stop working.
The fundraising campaign on Kickstarter has already begun. At the time of writing, the first instalment of Hoverboard was available for a fee of $ 3775. According to the plan.
The campaign ends on October 21, 2015 – the day when Marty went to the future in the movie “Back to the Future 2”. If the campaign is successful, deliveries will begin in July 2016.
