Can an Electric Hoverboard Ditch Wheels, and Drive on Metal Blades?

Beware the thin ice.

Who said that hoverboards are made to take on certain terrains only? Imagination knows no limits, that's why you can almost modify anything if you follow the engineer inside you. 

Hoverboards are portable self-balancing electric vehicles; basically, scooters without handle grips. You probably have seen at least a couple of people riding them on the streets, sidewalks, and such grounds. However, we bet that you'd never come across one riding it on ice, and a hoverboard with saws functioning as wheels. Luckily, the creator from the YouTube channel The Q did just that. 

Replacing saws as wheels, he managed to turn his hoverboard into a "IcyBoard" after a few quick calculations and skillful hands. Make sure to watch it above if you like quick transformations, but think twice before actually doing the same without any caution.
