Samsung Powers This Connected, Music-Streaming “Hoverboard”
A self-balancing scooter that might be less likely to throw you off and catch fire
A startup called KIWANO plans to build a “hoverboard” you’d feel safer riding around. It pairs with your smartphone and is powered by electronics from Samsung.
This partnership with the well-known electronics brands gives the hoverboard an important edge. Hoverboards have recently received criticism over poor build quality. Some hoverboards suddenly throw people off or worse, explode and start fires.
