The Hoverboard was first described and imagined by the novelist M.K Joseph in 1967 and gained popularity in the Back to the Future movie franchise! From that moment, in the late 1980`s, the hoverboard has been a dream of every sci-fi enthusiast who enjoyed the flick! Now, although the hoverboard is finally here, it is still pretty darn expensive! However, don`t fret, because this Hoverboard DIY project is definitely affordable! All that you will need is a couple of wooden planks, batteries, glue, switches and torque motors!
All of these things are very easy to find! Some of you may argue that this is not an original hoverboard but rather a balance board. Nevertheless, it is quite practical and efficient! The main shape is made of wood which stores all of the electronic bits. The two torque motors are directly attached to the board and both of them are powered by two batteries! Navin Kambhala found that lap top batteries work quite well!
Meaning that you won`t need to spend a lot of money for buying specific batteries! Amazingly, this homemade hoverboard works exceptionally well! At the end of the video, Navin demonstrates its efficiency while traveling on the ground with great ease! This Hoverboard DIY project may not look like the most elegant of designs.
