So why are we here? To walk you through six situations where you could totally use a hoverboard, and assess practicality of said use in each case. We’re giving 2 ratings: a) Strongly Recommended and b) Soch lein

1. Rukhsati on hoverboard

This sounds like an excellent idea on paper. It really does. But bridal attire is heavy, embellished and expensive. Yes it would make for cool pictures and video. And you’d be a star to your friends for all of 15 minutes. But we advise caution. VERDICT: Soch lein


2. Hoverboard out of work on pay-day 

Do it. VERDICT: Strongly Recommended


3. Substitute cardio with hoverboard-workout

While this is an appealing way to ‘change things up’ in your workout, we’re not sure it works for everyone across the board. If you’re already a pro at balance, then by all means- be our guest. Imagine the snaps and grams you could get from doing some bicep curls while hovering. VERDICT: Recommended with strong reservations

4. Window-shopping at the mall on hoverboard you bought HERE! 

We say window-shop because if you knew what was good for you, of course you wouldn’t commit your time and money to anything more than that. 😛 Right? Right! What are we here for? Avoid Saturdays and Sundays because of excess awaam. Depending on the day of the week, and provided you’re not pulling these shenanigans on a weekend, go for it. VERDICT: Strongly Recommended

5. Hover-board into a China shop

6. Hoverboard on the beach 

Done and done.  VERDICT: Strongly Recommended

7. Hover drive-thru
