Hover Boards – Landing Gear Retraction

One technique to solve the problem of hoverboard wheels is to make extremely light weight wheels for rolling or very hard landings. One great thing about hover boards is that they use the “ground effect” and reduce the strain on ankles on landing, yet skateboarding is currently about gaining momentum and then thrusting into the air, which means riders must adapt to new techniques or designers of hover boards must pony up to the reality if they expect early adoption from mass market exploits.One great thing going about Hoverboards is that they fly and flying goes very deep in the desires of mankind. How would the landing gear be activated? One thought is to have a set of tap push button controls on the hoverboard for acceleration of hover motors and another to put up the landing gear, making the skateboard into a hoverboard. Three in the green and away they go hover board style?

Then if the landing were to be very hard or a rolling landing (airplane runway type rather than helicopter style) then the rider could tap the push button control to extend the landing gear and yes this would require lots of practice by the rider to become proficient.Engineers are now designing the skateboards of the Future and are thinking here along with the Online Think Tank. One interesting dilemma for these designers currently is should these skateboards-hoverboards have wheels at all.The easiest way to control it is having full belief it can do the things you want it to. After all, your mind is the engine that’s going to make it work. By choosing the rules, you know it’ll work.

This is something that will ultimately be a compromise by designers and engineers and the desires of the riders purchasing the hover board technologies in the market place. Performance is on everyone’s mind and so the mutual goals appear to be inline with each other.When it comes to commuting from one place to another, all will agree to the fact that the invention of vehicles has been a big boon. Among the three ways of traveling, namely the roadways, waterways and the airways, people make use of roads for traveling over short to medium distances. They either make use of cars or other means of public or private transport.
