“The future of personal transportation has arrived at Sharper Image! The rechargeable Hover Board is an eco-friendly electric vehicle that balances itself automatically to give you a smooth, comfortable ride around campus or around town.” –

The Board Store features ‘The SOGO Board’, which has a range of up to 12 miles on a full charge and speeds ranging from 6 to 10 m.p.h.

Keeping in line with The Sharper Image® commitment to imagination, creativity and innovation, The Board Store will be an ideal setting to show off your new SOGO.
