Video of hoverboard going up in flames
We've all heard about hoverboards (swegboards, balance boards, or whatever you call them) being something of a safety concern. Well, one bloke decided to buy one, and film his first attempt on it.
You can assume that the video was initially supposed to be an exercise in showing someone who amusingly can't operate the thing, and falls off and whatnot.
However, the clip captures the things exploding, of a fashion.
Stephen Lee Nott, who runs the Bule British Youtube channel charged his board up overnight, then took it outside for a spin. Initially, it is just a clip of someone not moving at all.
Then, as you have probably already seen, smoke emerges from one of the wheels, and then, whoosh - flames!
He then pours the contents of a kettle on an electrical fire, which will no doubt catch the attention of some folk out there. Either way, this video doesn't look good for those who have bought a hoverboard and have one in the house.
