Hoverboards


FireToys reports: [edited]

We are now taking pre-orders for the latest craze to hit Japan: hoverboards. These high quality boards will maintain a height of around 20cm for up to an hour before requiring recharging.

The Yakinolo board comes equipped with a stabiliser mode to help get you started (switch on the underside of the board). Once you get used to balancing on the hoverboard, switching it to normal mode enables you to perform more advanced tricks (like riding off walls).

The hoverboard works by using strong opposing magnetic forces to maintain its height. It uses two 25cm electromagnetic pads powered by a 12v rechargeable battery to push against the earth's natural magnetic field (generated by the convection of the liquid outer core).

The board comes supplied with a mains charger and a spare set of front and rear bumpers.

Price: £199.95 (Inc VAT at 17.5%)
