I love the fact most of the post sound as if they know nothing about the hover board which only hovers,  u have to do the work to make it move but it will save wear and tear on sidewalks/streets while allowing someone to use it for running quick errands to the library,  store,  take urself to school,  ect....here's the link i seen yesterday about the laws in Austria will soon be updated since it's finally going to be available for folks to use.  FYI they need no machanics or fuel as they act as repelling magnets using the metals underground.  I've forgotten the whole story but it's wonderful how they work.  Story on ABC about the law updates needed:

I recall seeing a news article recently about the gadgets and gizmo's which were originally showcased in the Back to the Future movie so many years ago now and it implied how accurately futuristic the film was to be predicting things decades in advance.  I don't quite see it like that. I think someone imagined these ideas up as extraordinary pieces of futuristic science and then someone else started to put the wheels in motion regarding the creation of this 'out of this world' item.

Yes, there basically are the 2 types of predictions: the self-fulfilling prophecies where someone sees something cool and go about trying to create it in real-life (eg. hooverboards, self-tying Nikes), and the truly insightful ones that accurately reads future trends (eg. video-phone, wearable tech.).

Isn't it the hover boards that have been bursting into flames? I've seen them on the news lately. There are all kinds of warnings out about them.

And they don't hover over anything either. Duh!

I've seen these but I also have seen a news report showing how THEY CATCH FIRE when plugged in to recharge so, if I were anyone who is going to get one, I'd be real careful!!!

There is a safety issue if you buy one with a cheap Chinese battery.  Be sure you have a quality battery by a well known source.  One CEO of a hoverboard company stated that if you pay less than about $400 you could certainly have one with a cheap battery and be sure and check no matter!!!

I always hear Mark Cuban suing other hoverboard companies because he had the patient for it. Other then that I heard some boards exploded due to charging
