Technology has created a sharp turn, making advancements in daily living unimaginable. Citing concepts from the 1967 film “back to the future”, who would have thought that those make-believe inventions will later on come to life? One example is the Hover Board. Hover boards are drawn from the concept of skate boards, a board having wheels on two sides with a platform in between. Although it carries in its name the word “hover”, it doesn’t actually levitate from the ground. Hover boards require a great sense of balancing in order to move. Considered as a portable scooter, this is powered with a rechargeable battery which requires energy rather than fuel. This aspect holds a lot of controversy.
