Someone Needs To Say This About Hoverboards…

I know I’m fighting a losing battle with this one, but someone needs to say something because I just can’t stand it anymore…

 

THIS is a hoverboard:

THIS isĀ NOT a hoverboard:

Why do people insist on calling these things hoverboards???? They have wheels! On the ground! They don’t hover at all!

Can we please stop the madness!!

Calling these things hoverboards gets nerds, like me’s, hopes up that hoverboards might exist and be available for consumer purchase. I want a hoverboard like the one from Back To The Future 2. Not this segway without the handlebars.

PLEASE STOP CALLING THESE THINGS HOVERBOARDS!!!
