  • Adobe Systems Inc., the maker of popular digital design programs for creatives, is planning to launch the full version of its Photoshop app for Apple Inc.’s iPad as part of a new strategy to make its products compatible across multiple devices and boost subscription sales.

A hoverboard is made up of multiple components: a frame made of steel with a central pivoting point, a logic board, and a couple of gyroscopes and electric motors, to name a few. The basic framework of how to operate one is as follows: the rider uses subtle movements of their feet on the pressure pads included in the body of the board to indicate their desired direction of travel. The logic board receives that data and sends it to the motors and gyroscopes. The motors are what makes the vehicle move, while the gyroscopes prevent the rider from overbalancing and crashing out.
