The only video you need to see that proves you need a hoverboard

From the moment man stood upright, we’ve been obsessed with moving faster – two feet are just not efficient enough.

Like the epic model Marty McFly glides around on in Back to the Future Part II, the hoverboard is generally recognized as the most amazing thing we don’t have.

But in case you haven’t been paying attention, the hoverboard market, as we know it, is booming. Regardless what you call it – monorover, mini-Segway, or self-balancing electric thingy – the hoverboard is on every kid’s (and every TNW employee’s) wish list.

And now, you can purchase your very own at a reduced price.

The new Bawsboard VI is insanely fun to ride. It intuitively knows which way you want to go based on how you move your weight – with it’s rubber pressure place, you can safely move in any direction you want.

It also includes revolutionary SmartChip technology and the same Samsung lithium batteries used in the Tesla Model S.

For a limited time, TNW is letting you purchase a discounted hoverboard to call your own.

Besides, if it’s good enough for Spider Man, it’s good enough for you.
