Shopping on a Hoverboard - Rideable
- dsashin, CNN iReport producer
They call it many things, hoverboard, personal mobility device, rideable, foot scoot, 2 wheel balancing device, swegway, IO Hawk, Phunkeduck, moonrover, and Hovertrax.
My hoverboard is called the IO Hawk and I found out about it at CES (Consumer Electronic Show) January 2015 and had to get. I ride my IO Hawk around town using it as a 'Last Mile' solution and have taken it through many airports when going to other cities
2 hours to charge
Will go 8-12 miles depending on weight
Check out my shopping video of my husband using a personal mobility device. The last photo is of a San Diego Police officer trying my IO Hawk after he discovered it is a EPAMD (Electronic Personal Assisted Mobility Device) and legal to ride on sidewalks in California.
