The world needs more new Christmas music: it sounds like something only a raving maniac would say, but there’s a grain of truth in it.

“Hoverboards” are the latest tech craze sweeping the globe. Central London shop Spy Master is one of the few retailers in the UK that stocks the device in-store. Among drones, Go-Pro action cameras and encryption equipment, the two-wheeled, brightly coloured gadgets apparently fly off the shelves. “Thousands” have been sold at the shop this year says the company’s director, Julia Wing. They offer a row of different models – including a blue IO Hawk, a large graffiti-adorned board, and a bright-green transporter with Bluetooth speakers – ranging between £500 to around £1,500. “I think they’re so futuristic – it’s the first time we’ve seen anything like this,” Wing says. “Because celebrities have them now, it’s the thing to have.” Hoverboards are mostly sold online, yet the fact that more people are uploading photos on to Instagram of themselves riding the devices, combined with the … [Read more...] about ‘Hoverboards’: Christmas crossover or preserve of the rich?
