Hoverboard Mania Hits Downtown Walnut Creek


Now that Christmas is over, let the hoverboard mania begin. Over the weekend I spotted numerous hoverboards all over downtown Walnut Creek including parks and Mt. Diablo Blvd. crosswalks. Although called hoverboards, they don’t actually hover like in Back to the Future Part II; they have two wheels on the ground and movement is controlled based on leaning motions, like a Segway without hands.

Has anyone tried a hoverboard? What do you think? I’m tempted but then I read articles like this and reconsider.
