    Anyone here try delivering on a hover board yet? I have a city route and can't see using something like this guy is showing in the picture, but when I was on a rural route with super long driveways that I couldn't drive up, maybe I could have been lazy enough...

    The driver who is riding the hoverboard is from a large northeastern city. He delivers daily to a guy named Casey Neistat. He vlogs his daily life, and the driver in question is in quite a few of his videos. Casey asked him if he wanted to try the board out and the driver got on it for a quick ride down the hallway. The videos even mention the driver's name, so I guess the company doesn't have a problem with it. I can't see this as a viable way to deliver packages.

    They're illegal in my city. Highly impractical for a delivery guy. Too many people. Too many steps.

    That guy is not working within his power zone.

    Casey rocks! I like his attitude. He never misses a vlog, either.
