Because sometimes walking is way too much work

Sort of like a Segway without handlebars or an aura of contempt, Hovertrax is a skateboard-sized auto-balancing "transporter" equipped with gyroscopic tech that you control by simply shifting your body weight.The 9lb rig takes just an hour to charge up, has a travel range of about 4mi, and maxes out at a face-melting 6mph. To move in either direction, you just press your feet downward or backward, and steering's achieved by tilting either your left or right foot toward the desired direction.
