Glide around your neighborhood with the unique  Hovertrax, which is currently a Kickstarter campaign, trying to raise funds to get this personal transportation device on the market. It’s an auto-balancing electric transporter with gryo technology that allows you to shift your body weight to control speed and direction so that you can glide around. At the slightest lean of your feet, the Hovertrax travels forward, backwards, turns left and right, and rotates clockwise and counterclockwise. It was created to transcend transportation toys and focus on practical movement we’ve built a totally new product that celebrates personal and intuitive transport. The Hovertrax can be used both indoors and out on a daily basis. It weighs only 9lbs and can easily be stored or carried in a backpack or handbag. Recharge the battery at home or while out on the go, by easily plugging the Hovertrax into a wall outlet for one hour. The ultra chic Hovertrax responds to your foot movement accelerating forward, backward and left and right. The Hovertrax features two halves that tilt independently of each other, with each wheel having its own motor and is equipped with a gyro sensor and accelerometer. It’s super tough yet super light and fun to ride! You can score  your own if you pledge $395 or more!
