First real hoverboard - level 1

First real hoverboard - level 1

27-10-2014 15:00

A company creates a hoverboard. The hoverboard is like a skateboard, but it has no wheels. It hovers 1 inch above the ground. The American company tests its 18th model.

The hoverboard creates a magnetic field. This magnetic field pushes the board off the ground. You can give $100 to the company, and you can ride on the hoverboard. If you give the company $10,000, you can have the hoverboard.

Difficult words: create (make), wheel (thing which is like a circle and it is on a car or a skateboard), hover (be in the air).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
