■Class discussion: Do you own or want a hoverboard? Do the safety issues concern you? Why or why not? If a hoverboard explosion injured you or burned down your house, who should be held responsible? A Chinese manufacturer? A U.S. seller? The board purchaser? Hoverboards have been banned from airline flights and New York City streets. Do you think the product could be banned completely? Could tough safety rules ultimately save the boards from extinction?
