After seeing these things all over Youtube for months I finally broke down and bought myself a Hoverboard scooter. They are pretty fun, being an adult I think the novelty is going to wear off after some time but its fun to ride for now.

If anyone is thinking about grabbing one dont pay some crazy price like $1500. I picked mine up on Ali Express for $220 with free shipping.

It's kind of a fun conversation starter, everywhere I go people ask to ride it

Thought I read a story that those things were going up in flames.

To be honest, I don't think hoverboards are good and feels terrible when on bumpy road.
Not so cool to carry as well.I just bought one a month ago after seeing people seem to have fun with it. Now I regret, I should have gone for some foldable electric scooter that I can have fun and get around in a ok distance.

But there are creative people out there as well, I realised that I could do some changes to my hoverboard as well and it's kinda cool.
