Oxboard - Pro & One
In a five-week period all the moulds have been realized.
The Oxboard has taken the existing hoverboard technology a few steps further in the high-tech region of Eindhoven. The result is the safest, most technologically advanced and most sustainable balance board.
After intense brainstorm sessions with a specific focus on the end-user, several concepts were presented. In the end, the concept with the 2K body and most robust design had been selected.
Due to the close cooperation between the design and engineering teams, we managed to develop all parts for manufacturing and prototyping despite the extremely short time frame. Besides product design, color studies, and packaging design were part of the development process as well.
In a five-week period all the moulds have been realized. This includes the two-component moulds combining hard PC/ABS with soft TPE.

Getting ready for production means measuring different parts, optimizing tolerances and fine-tuning the assembly procedure. This procedure ensures a high-quality product.
GBO Innovation makers has been manufacturing the Oxboard since 2015. The production and assembly are carefully monitored locally resulting in zero-defect delivery status.
Not only does the covering in the front open, but the covering on the top also does too. This ensures that potential repairs can be reached with ease.
GBO Innovation makers is responsible for numerous air and sea shipment deals to guarantee on-time delivery under all circumstances. During the development process packaging sizes have been optimized with smooth logistics in mind.
