There were a lot more unique gadgets at Interbike 2018 than bikes. InMotion's latest invention that takes the concept of a hoverboard and splits it into two independent machines; one for each foot! The company says it's a totally new experience that feels more like rollerskating with the freedom to zip around at will and that Hovershoes X1 are easier to learn and safer than hoverboards. It's a challenge to get the hang of balancing them, but younger users have no problems.

Here are the specs of the Hovershoes X1 provided by Inmotion: Battery: 54Wh each / Motor: 250W each / Payload: 22 - 176 lbs / Max Range: 7 miles / Speed: 7 mph / Max Grade: 9° / Waterproof: IP65 / Charge Time: 1.5 hours / Weight: 6 lbs each Tire Diameter: 3.5 in.

And the price? One pair of Hovershoes, charger, + one year warranty is $499. But they're sold out already but they're taking back orders which will ship later this year, or early 2019.
