However hover boards or Swegways are now common sights and seen in many parks and around cities around the UK.

The Origins Of The Hover Board
You might think that Swegways were invented in the last couple of years but that simply isn’t true. In fact the first models were unveiled in 2001- 15 years earlier! These initial models were made by Segway Inc. These were going to be marketed as helpful vehicles we could all use on the pavement. It was suggested back then that the Swegway could be the perfect vehicle for police officers; allowing them to travel faster than they would on foot, and arriving at incidents much quicker than they would if they’d sprinted. The rules surrounding where Swegways can be used has changed as safety concerns have become an issue, but that hasn’t stopped people young and old from taking the plunge and investing in one so they can have their very own slice of fun. To make the most out of your Swegway, you could definitely think about taking it off the road for an unforgettable experience, especially if you know you won’t be content just using in the house or in the front lawn.
