Move over Vespa, there is a new hot way of driving around that would make Marty McFly feel right at home. Sure you’ve seen those scooter-like things without handlebars in parks and on the streets. Or at least all over the social media. It’s the latest trend in urban personal transportation. Even celebrities are on it (no pun intended).
Self-balanced scooters, known as hoverboards have become the latest status symbol of young stars and wannabes thanks to the hype created by the social media. Countless of photos and videos posted on Instagram, including Justin Bieber zooming around his living room with his friends, or Kendall Jenner and Cara Delevigne crashing together on a couch.
The rapper Meek Mill was spotted riding a Skywalker board with Bluetooth on his way to photoshoot. “It’s like roller skates. I’m trying to master it,” he said as he zipped ahead, stopping once to pose for a selfie with a fan.
