The cheapest hoverboards for children￼
A hoverboard, maybe you’ve heard your kids talk about it but you have no idea what it is? There are more and more children (especially in the big city) who no longer come to school on a bicycle, but on different types of hoverboard or use it as a toy. According to Wikipedia, a hoverboard is “an electric motor-driven single-person means of transport. It is a two-part shelf with a built-in battery with wheels on both sides”.
A hoverboard has no handlebars; you steer by moving weight and manipulating the board with your feet. You may remember the name from the movie “Back to the Future Part II”, where it was introduced as a kind of floating skateboard. The maximum speed of a hoverboard can vary, but on average, this is around 12 km/h. Hoverboards are currently prohibited on public roads in the Netherlands and England. Driving on your own property, on the other hand, is legal. I looked up the “cheapest” hoverboards for you (although they are still quite at the price, I think.
How does a hoverboard move?
To move around, a hoverboard uses balance. By using a gyroscope (a rotational symmetrical mass that can rotate around its axis) and software control of the wheels, both forward and the reverse can be driven. You can also rotate 360 degrees with a hoverboard.
How to control a hoverboard?
It all seems super easy, but some practice is definitely needed. At some point, you will have the feeling and then it seems to go almost ‘automatically’.
Driving forward; to drive forward, at about you have to lean forward. You have to place your feet on both platforms and your toes have to point down.
Reversing; to reverse you have to lean back. You have to place your feet on both platforms and your heels have to point down.
Steer to the right; to steer to the right you have to put the pressure on your left leg.
Send to the left; to steer to the left you have to put the pressure on your right leg.
Safety advice; preferably wear a safety helmet and protective clothing if you use a hoverboard. Furthermore, the advice is to always do this under the supervision of an adult.
