Not Quite ‘Back To The Future’ But New Hoverboard is Close

Good Day World!

The new recreational sensation this season is hoverboards that are reminiscent of the one used in the movie Back To The Future. 

For those of you who haven’t yet seen one, a self balancing scooter is sort of like a skateboard that requires absolutely no energy from you to get going.

They are similar to that hoverboard that you dreamt of having as a kid. Now, who wouldn’t like to own one of these? They’re becoming extremely popular now especially that a lot of celebrities are seen around and are posting videos of them using these scooters.

Like the hoverboard from Back To the Future, these scooters operate based on your body movements.

The "self-balancing scooters" will go on sale at Wal-Mart starting around November 1, according to Sapna Maheshwari at Buzzfeed.

The electric scooters have been described as a "hands-free Segway." Executives at Wal-Mart anticipate this will be the hot new holiday item. The hoverboards will only be for sale on the website at first.

FOR THE RECORD

Segway filed a lawsuit against major self balancing scooter producing companies for infringement of its patents. That lawsuit was filed against Inventist for creating a scooter with the same idea of the Segway.

Segway will probably chase down some of the other major producing companies in the upcoming days.

Time for me to walk on down the road…
