Yes let me Introduce you,
Mr. Shane Chen
Chen, the inventor of the self-balancing scooter was born and brought up in Beijing. His birthplace was not an ideal to develop and expand a business in the mid-1980’s so he migrated to America to get better opportunities.
He was the first to file a provisional patent for self-balancing electric unicycle in 2010 and he filed a patent for HOVERTRAX in 2012 which was granted in 2014, which further developed as a hoverboard.
The first hoverboard was manufactured in Shenzhen. And the first patent was at the name of Shane Chen. But few bad incidents after the first entry of Hoverboard in the market caused damage to the image of Hovertrax manufactured under the patent of Shane. Mark Cuban declared to take over the patent form the name of Shane Chen.

Tips To Buy Your Best Hover Board
So keep in mind these features to buy the best.
Safety comes first, and after few incidents from the past I suggest don’t even consider one that doesn’t offer UL certification. As that ensures that the one you are purchasing is perfectly electric shock and fireproof.
If you want to have a tough ride I mean an all-terrain route do check the wheels are wider than the normal range. The thicker the wheel the stronger the grip.
Ensure that the hoverboard is not made up of cheap material like few are constructed with cheap and lightweight material and claim it to be aluminum alloy.
To have a hover ride you need to check out the battery levels so a quick charging will make you equipped with your running fuel earlier than the slower one.so prefer the ones which provide one-hour charging.
This one is another factor to be considered while buying a hoverboard that its weight-bearing capacity should be more than the ridders weight.
Different speed levels are also there so choose one that suits you best and most.
This one is a luxury feature but checking it around actually adds up lots of ease and more fun in your ride.
This one is actually another necessity that looks like a luxury. As if you want to enjoy your favorite Hoverboard ride at night that will be a must.
