Researchers reveal tip for riders of hoverboards

(A) Schematic of the joint angles and the hoverboard plate orientation (side view). (B) The feet are oriented 45∘∘ to the left of the hoverboard, corresponding to conditions A1 and A2. (C) Feet orientation in condition B. (D) Movement trajectory in the x-y plane from a representative participant #9 in condition A2. The line color (from red to blue) indicates the time. Grey lines indicate the goal lines participants had to cross. Credit: Scientific Reports (2022). DOI: 10.1038/s41598-022-08291-0
