ATHENS, Ohio — Fresh on the heels of last week’s “Back to the Future” Day festivities, The Post wrote about the popularity of hoverboards, or hands-free segways, on university campuses, including Ohio University.

Some of devices can go up to 12 mph, handle bumps and small debris without trouble and take about two to three hours to charge. Although the hoverboards cost $1,500 to $1,800, there are off-brands available for about $300, which have become the top choice for students, according to the report. For the full story, click here.
