A self-balancing two-wheeled board or scooter is a portable, rechargeable battery-powered vehicle. It consists of two wheels arranged side-by-side, joined by two small platforms on which the rider stands, and an internal balancing mechanism. The device is controlled by the rider's feet on built-in gyroscopic, sensored platforms. The board debuted in China, and became popular in the United States after numerous celebrity appearances with the device in 2015. There is no universally accepted name for the device, as its various product names are attributable to the companies which distribute it, not its Chinese manufacturers.
