[News] InMotion Hovershoes X1 : Self-Balancing Electric Rollerblades!

Hello Mi Fans,

As we all know there are plenty of good hoverboards around, but a company named InMotion has come up with an innovative twist on the concept Hovershoes. If hoverboards are essentially motorized self-balancing skateboards, then InMotion's Hovershoes X1 are motorized self-balancing rollerblades or small hoverboards for each foot.


Highlights:-
  • A company named InMotion has developed shoes with a hoverboard on each foot.

  • InMotion Hovershoes X1 are essentially two self-balancing hoverboards.

  • Each one weighs six pounds, can travel at 8 Kmph and can go up to 8 Kms.



#Hovershoes X1

Have you ever seen a hoverboard and thought to yourself, 'Hmm, what would happen if I chopped this in half with an ax?
-Jeffrey Will, Experience Manager

The concept of Hovershoes is essentially like separating both sides of a hoverboard so that each side operates independently. Technically, each 'shoe' is a single wheeled device, not unlike a tiny version of an electric unicycle with 3.5-inch roller style wheels with a platform on top. It's a totally new experience that feels more like rollerskating with the freedom to zip around at will.



Features:-
  • Each unit is powered on with a power button on its side.
  • Each 2.7 kg Hovershoe has a 250-watt motor.
  • To activate the motors for self-balancing, each unit has a pressure-sensitive pad to detect the presence of a rider's foot.



  • Each unit is powered by a 54-Wh battery.
  • They have a top speed of 8 Kmph, can tackle grades of up to 9 degrees.
  • They're also IP65 waterproof, meaning they're dust-tight and resistant to water projected by a nozzle.



Summary:-
The separated Hovershoes concept, meanwhile, means that riders can accelerate using either foot without fear of wiping out. This makes riding more fun, but also safer. From the looks of the product's webpage, it is possible to join them together via a rod-like attachment, temporarily converting them into the equivalent of a regular hoverboard.
