Onewheel's hidden sensors and mobile integration let users customize their ride and re-explore urban riding

There weren’t any hoverboards featured at CES this year, but one device is giving riders a similar hands-free experience. Onewheel is a self-balancing board that uses inertial sensors and algorithms to help balance the board around a single middle-placed wheel.

The board’s brushless hub motor powers the board, which riders can ride for up to 4-6 miles at speeds of up to 12 mph. Like maneuvering a Segway, riders can control the board by simply leaning forward or backward, triggering the gyro and accelerometer sensors that feed the speed-determining processor.
