emphasising the small details and enhancing the use of modern technology with a minimal design language, the hoverboard 2.0 centres itself around a retractable steering column which holds the main console. when retracted it becomes a full fledged handle which can be used to maneuver the hoverboard transforming into a segway.
designed by nikhil kapoor, the hoverboard 2.0 comes with a third wheel placed in the centre to improve the stability and maneuverability of the hoverboard. two screens show the status of the board and are seamlessly placed providing a clear view during the two steering modes. a RGB LED strip is integrated along the wheel arch, that helps in notifying and indicating to commuters around it by creating an ambient customized color.
