What do the future skateboard designs and designs will look like? If skateboards will fly and function like hover boards, then it is likely that they’ll look significantly more different than what we are familiar with. We know for instance hovercrafts are equipped with an inside space to hold the air in a ground effect manner.

Also, hovercraft blast low-pressure air under between one and 2 pounds for every square inch. To lift a 200-pound person doesn’t require as large a flow of air close to the ground. This is because of the ground effect. However, as the hoverboard grows higher, the pressure area is released and as the hoverboard accelerates, the air is forced out.

Any design that is to come for hover boards should be able to take this into account. The mechanism that blows air also occupies space and needs to be included in the inside and exterior of the board. The board needs to be lightweight and hollow inside. It will also need to be slightly thicker or higher to accommodate the mechanical components.

Our sketches show about 4-5 inches of height, with 2 inches beneath the board. In addition, hovercraft require lots of air. Therefore, the board must be designed in as to capture the air while it is moving forward using a number of air scoops and slats that aid in redirecting the air towards the internal mechanism.

A lot of restriction on the airflow can result in the hoverboard not to function properly. This means that the person riding it will not be pleased with the speed, agility, or the performance of the board. It will also require an air-tight system for dumping the airflow it doesn’t require, like hover craft.

The design must allow the hoverboard toh l create enougift using the standard aerodynamic theories of wing design, that it can support 5 times the weight in forward flight. A wing design with side gates is required to be included in the design.

There is no way to waste airflow therefore any air blowing underneath must be reused through a variety of design-oriented strategies that push that air back towards the aerodynamic structure of the hoverboard’s body.

The idea is to create an inflatable hoverboard that could move as an hockey puck over and near table game boards, extremely fast and maneuverable. You can then use the speed to get lift from the winds and utilize deflection strategies to maneuver, tricks like jumping and clearing obstacles. Since forward flight exists, as well, the rider must utilize angles of attack strategies also.

If the rider chooses to speed up or switch direction, they can just pivot their board to the relative position and utilize it to slow down and change directions. In this transitional phase of flight the airflow at the base of the hoverboard will have to be held and directed back to the turbines, rather than fighting them so that the rider is able to zoom off and go in go in the opposite direction.

This is all feasible, however it could drastically alter the appearance and style of what we believe to be a skateboard of the future. The futuristic design is stunning and unlike anything that you’ve seen before. Can it fly? Absolutely, and unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
