The company Hovershoes X1, a subsidiary of InMotion, introduced its latest novelty – hoverbot.
It is very reminiscent of the fabulous boots that carry the owner on the road without any effort on his part, not in appearance, but in essence. Structurally, this is a pair of mini-platforms with motors and a balancing mechanism that are mounted on each leg.
Each copy of Hovershoes weighs 2.7 kg, has a 250-watt motor and a 54 Wh battery. This provides a cruising range of 8 km at a speed of up to 8 km / h, something like jogging. In this case, hoverboats can climb a slope at an angle of 9 degrees and carry 80 kg of load.
A controversial advantage, it is also a key feature of hoverbots – in the autonomous operation of each device of the pair.
They have the same characteristics, but an individual balancing system, which allows you to perform extremely unusual maneuvers.
And with the proper skill of owning an instrument, it is effective to move over rough terrain or to show tricks.
The bots have an IP65 protection class, they are waterproof and dustproof, relatively resistant to impact. They can cross shallow puddles or ride in a handstand, if you have enough skill. Hovershoes will be available in late July for $ 499.
