italian startup trotta has come up with a new mode of transport known as a ‘showerboard’, a kind of hoverboard set for your feet. equipped with 54wh batteries, each hovershoe is an ultra-agile board, capable of offering a range of up to 8 km.

simply step on and go – 250 watt motors are fitted to each device letting them reach a top speed of up to 14 km/h. thanks to the integrated automatic balancing function, the two individual skates remain standing after being switched on, and getting on and off of them. each hovershoe is ultra-agile with an external diameter of 3.5 inches and a weight of only 3.1kg.

the independence of both skates makes it much more flexible than a normal hoverboard. showerboard hovershoes are fully waterproof. recharging takes about 2 hours. due to the low weight, they can be easily transported whilst the LED bulbs positioned on the rubber bumpers ensure full visibility in the dark.


the showerboard hovershoes has launched on kickstarter where earlybird pledges can be made from €300 or roughly £263. if all goes well worldwide deliveries expected to take place before the end of the year.
