With new segway models which only have the wheels and a small motor, it sure does seem like there is magic at work. However, it is only the new craze of personal hoverboards, which make moving around even more fun. Your only issue will be to learn how to go the direction you want, because the tilt-stabilizers are sensitive and will take you some practice to learn it.

Moving Around Is Not as Simple as It Seems
Without anything to grab on, or without a steering wheel touse, it will be hard for some to learn how to move around with a hoverboard. Take your time and most of all, be patient. There are tricks involved, and it will be similar to learning how to walk once again. Nevertheless, it is best if you can look into what some of the tips are and how you can make your hoverboard experience better. Be aware that you will have to learn by trial and error, and that success will take time.
How Far Will You Get With a Single Charge?
The good thing about hoverboards in general is that they are smaller and more compact, the bad side is that the battery is packed tightly, having less power in it. However, the segway board packs a punch and it allows you to go quite far with a single charge. Though, you will still have to stop eventually, but charging will be faster too. Having too much fun can render your battery powerless fast, which is why you should pay attention to the power levels, so that you can get to a charger. Otherwise, you might end up losing balance and hurting yourself.
What Can We Expect in the Future?
Technology is advancing rapidly, and there it already success in creating hoverboards which actually hover. However, the future of those boards will be a bit different, but promising. For the time being, people will have to settle for the wheeled versions, which are just as awesome, and will help you get anywhere you want, fast. Bear in mind that you should practice how to ride one, for your own safety, and for those around you. Then again, it is only a matter of time before there is a sport invented using hoverbaords only, which can be loads of fun for all to try.
Riding a hoverboard seemed like a silly idea at first, because it looked flimsy and many assumed people will have a hard time adjusting to it. However, it could not be further from the truth, as many are loving it, and new possibilities for the board to be practical are opening up on regularly. Make sure to practice safe riding to avoid bumping into anyone or falling off. Most importantly, pay attention to the beeps of your battery telling you that it is charging time, or else you will be stuck, without power. From the technological aspect, it is a marvellous piece of machinery that will surely be improved further.
