Hovertrax is Like a Segway Without the Handlebars

/ 3 years ago


We’ve seen a host of personal transportation products. From tiny electric bikes to powered skateboards, none of them have ever received the same level of notoriety as the Segway. Well a new device called Hovertrax might just become the Segway 2.0.

The best way to think of the Hovertrax is to look at it as a Segway without the handlebars. It essentially operates in a similar way as the Segway; using gyroscopes and other sensors so you don’t fall flat on your face.

It will travel at a speed of 5 mph for 8 miles on a full charge. It’s largely targeted at indoor use (warehouses, airports), but could be used outdoors if you’re brave enough.

Having been under development for a while (the preview video bellow is from 2013), it went on sale last week at CES for $995.
