TECH REVIEW The Invention Of Hover-boards and Drones

The Invention Of Hover-boards and Drones

A self-balancing transporting two-wheeled board commonly referred to as a "hoverboard", is a type of portable rechargeable battery-powered scooter on which the rider stands and controls with the feet. The hoverboard is simultaneously fascinating and exhilarating, everyone is obsessed with it as well as the drones. 

A portable drone is a remote-controlled pilotless (unmanned) aircraft that features collapsible propellers, retractable landing gear, camera, a controller feature, and a display that allows the pilot to see what the drone is seeing in real time. Numerous companies including Amazon, Google, Disney and DHL want to use these unmanned aerial vehicles for delivery services, entertainment, crop management and aerial video photography. It features voice recognition and streaming video via a Real-Sense camera that helps the robot to manoeuvre around obstacles. 

However, technology has brought into existence three types of hoverboards. They are Hendo Hoverboards, Lexus Hoverboards and Omni Hoverboards. The Hendo and Lexus hoverboards are lifted by a magnetic field created by four disc-shaped hover engines and super-conductors respectively while the Omni Hoverboard is a skateboard with propellers like the helicopter. Most hoverboards need a metallic layer to elevate while other designs use wheels or propellers. They all can levitate about an inch from the ground and can carry up to 300 pounds for 15 minutes at a go. 

Hoverboards, drones and electric cars have all caught fire, exploded and burnt down houses. There have also been reports of scooters bursting into flames while people were riding them. The big problem has to do with the "quality" of the rechargeable lithium-ion batteries inside these devices. There is no doubt that technology breathes innovations. Hoverboards and Drones save time and money and are immensely environmentally friendly. I believe this is the beginning of a new ecosystem, one where robots can actually be open platforms and become useful partners.
