You Just Might Be Riding On A Hover Time Bomb: Hoverboards Raise Security Concerns

Well, the fancy and trendy two wheeled “gadget”, Hoverboard, is not really fancy after all, but rather, a security concern. 

This comes after more than 25 cases were raised of the hoverboards exploding. One example is: a few weeks ago, a hoverboard exploded burning down a house in Louisiana; another hoverboard exploded in the same state the next week while another caught fire at a mall in Washington this week forcing shoppers to be evacuated. 

The perceived danger is significant enough that major airlines have banned the little vehicles altogether. Amazon has also stopped selling the “hoverboards” online 

Trading standards recently warned that the demand for them had led to a big increase in cheap and dangerous imitations which can be flammable.

In the 254, no security alerts have been raised yet. I guess it’s only a matter of time.
