These electric balance wheels are about to go mainstream.

These electric mini Segways are about to go mainstream. Minutes ago the Bot Bros dance group appeared on Good Morning America and danced on hoverboards to Justin Bieber's "What do you mean."

The guys from Bot Bros demonstrate that these self-balancing scooters do work. The dance routine looks pretty slick on these wheels.

Self balancing wheels have been flooding in from Asia under various brands for a couple months now. These boards are powered by electric motors and are self balancing similar to the Segway. The steering is done with the feet through pressure sensitive buttons. Top speed of these self-balancing scooters is about 10mph. Amazon sells various models with prices ranging from $280 to $500. 

These new self-balancing personal transport toys cannot hide the fact that they are coming from China. They feature colorful LED lights and some models play music via Bluetooth. They come in all kinds of bright colors.

The hoverboard has been a popular idea ever since the Back to the Future movie. The Back To The Future Day is coming up on October 21, 2015 and we still do not have a real hoverboard. Lexus created a hoverboard based on magnets, but it only works on special prepared surfaces. 

A new Kickstarter project features a hoverboard with a single wheel. This new single wheel electric hoverboard works everywhere and gives the rider the feeling of riding an actual hoverboard like in Back to the Future.
