Anyone who has ever ridden a skateboard knows that they make excellent and efficient transportation to get to one place or another. It is a lot faster than walking and a lot less tiring than running. In the future skateboards will become hover boards and they will ride along on a cushion of air. Well how about for Security Guards who have to move around large facilities, aircraft hangers, military installations or important infrastructures? They will need to get around fast. What about US Border Patrol in areas they need to be on foot? Speaking of National Security and the use of hover boards or skateboards, what about Soldiers and the Future Fighting Force? It sure makes a lot of sense to be on a hover board rather than walking and if you need to move fast you can!
Indeed aid workers might also value the use of a hoverboard. They would be excellent for Golfers and Referees at Sporting Competitions or how about soccer coaches so they could follow the game of play in scrimmages? Perhaps new sporting events will be invented using hover boards? What about Polo on hover boards rather than horses?Rescue Workers could use a lift from hover boards and it makes sense for lifeguards at the beach to hover across the sand to the waves and surf out on top of the water to save someone drowning. Then turn it off and let it float, put the person on and hover again back to the shoreline. You can see how important the skateboards of the future will be, as they fly into our work place.
The engineers and designers are getting serious about building the skateboards of the future, but these will not be regular skateboards, we are talking hyper-maneuverable hover boards. In fact the Online Think Tank is now preparing a special report the Future of Skate Parks, Skateboards and Hover Boards of the Future. Indeed one of the most serious questions is safety.Great Question and for your question of Hover Board stabilization, loops, rolls or upside down flight here are some thoughts; We keep the skateboard or hover board in “Positive ‘G’ Mode” all the time. Just like doing a barrel roll in an airplane, hang glider, parasail or helicopter. If you start with a high-speed steep bank and carry it all the way around you stay in the positive G sector.
