Hoverboards are nearly half the price this Black Friday weekend

The personal transport tech is 40% off today

A couple of years ago, Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa was handcuffed in LAX airport for riding his hoverboard through the terminal. Last year, he told NME: “I’m the reason they created laws about that shit!” But at the time he predicted everyone would be using the technology in the next six months, tweeting: “I stand for our generation and our generation is gonna be riding hoverboards, so if you don’t like it eat a dick!”

Well, it’s been more than six months and it doesn’t look like everyone is using hoverboards – but this Black Friday weekend they’ve become a whole lot more affordable, so perhaps Wiz could eventually be right on the personal transport front. Amazon is offering a discount of £160 – 40% – on its range of Aeroboard scooters, bringing the price down from £400 to £239.99. Check out the offer below:

Elsewhere this Black Friday weekend, deals have been popping up all over the place. You can get great Nintendo Switch deals at a range of retailers; there are some amazing iPhone 8 deals despite the phone’s very recent release; and a bunch of Bluetooth speaker deals have popped up too.
