Hoverboards are one of the latest tech crazes, and they have set the standard for self-propelled transportation pretty high. However, many of us who like to tinker and fiddle would enjoy trying our hand at creating our own board.
I’ve curated a few of my favourite YouTube tutorials for you to take a look at, as well as why I find them fantastic. Get your toolbox out; it’s time to start creating.

This video is back from 2014, back when Hendo Hoverboards were still a Kickstarter campaign looking for backers. I love that this video really takes you through the science behind the board, and in a way that even laymen like myself can understand.
Plus, it’s the process for a board that actually hovers using magnets. It’s a pretty cool guide, and the channel itself is worth checking out for some pretty cool builds.
This one is more like the wheeled Hoverboards that are popular today, and it is a fun build that just about anyone can do. Yes, there are a lot of wheels, but I like that the concept and build are both quite simple – so pretty much everyone can spend a weekend having fun and creating this. It might not hover, but it certainly moves well.

This is kind of like “How to Make a Hoverboard for Dummies”, but in a good way of course. It uses simple stuff that you likely have at home, or will be able to get easily from a hardware store, and the instructions are incredibly clear and visual.
This is great for people like me who like to see every stage clearly as they go, and the end results are pretty fun (even if they do involve wheels).

This is a recent video, and an excellent one to watch if you want a clear creation process with materials that can be found easily. It does take on the style of a Segway Hoverboard in the sense that it uses wheels, but when it is in action, you will be pretty impressed by how well it moves.
I found myself really understanding the creative process with this video and how everything works, so hopefully, it proves to be a good one for you too.
Hopefully, this has filled you with a few ideas for creating your own Hoverboard, so you can impress your friends and family with your skills. There are quite a few great videos for you to look at, and at least one of them is sure to get your creative juices flowing.
What did you think of our video selection? Are these boards that you would try making at home, or are there better guides on how to make a Hoverboard out there? Let us know in the comments below – we love hearing from you!
