Hoverboard is one of the many brand names that those things are sold under. From my understanding, a bunch of factories create that shit, so there is no one source, and many resellers give them there own name.

Just watch, new slick packaging will make it socially acceptable, and within 5 years after that point all popular big booty girls will go to the club in hover chairs, weighing 200lbs plus shifting back and forth to the music in the club.

In order to get with one though you still need to be over 6ft and be fit.
