Prototype Hoverboards – With or No Wheels

If you can build a hover board with wheels then that will make it easier for landing, but it will not make it very aerodynamic and it also adds weight. If something is to fly it is important that it is as light as possible.If a hover board loses its air underneath or its ground cushion it will settle back to Earth and then when it touches the ground too fast and goes through the ground cushion then the rider will be stopped as if he hit a rock on the sidewalk that stopped his wheels. This will deject the rider and might cause injury or worse hurt the rider’s pride. Generally skateboard riders have the agility to keep from injury due to minor stoppages.

The question is simple enough and yet the designers of the hover boards of the future will have to decide whether to put wheels on.Due to the adoption process of those who were engage in early technologies it might be wise to have wheels on the first hover boards and sell people the ease of the transition. Although in doing so performance will be lost on the hover board and decrease the potential excitement for the rider.This might cause a backlash against the new technology of the hover board and prevent it from attaining the attrition rate needed with new trends and technologies. The smaller the hover board the more agile it will be and the more fun to ride.

It makes sense if we are to introduce hover boards into the skateboard market that we must completely consider the “WOW” factor for the rider if we wish them to ditch their current wooden skateboard for this new technology. Also let us consider snowboarding versus skiing and how the snowboarding trend eventually overtook skiing and revolutionized the sport.There are sometimes aesthetic differences like wheels or casings, but they all come from the same factory. The differences in pricing are different size attempts at getting as big a markup as possible. You should aim to get as close to $300 as you can for the standard hoverboard, any lower it is possible you are being scammed (especially below $250) and any higher you are paying too much.
