After sharing his experience of having a restaurant-like eat-in at home, business tycoon Harsh Goenka recently took to Twitter to share a unique video that is going viral for all the right reasons. Goenka shared a video where a man can be seen riding what appears to be a hoverboard on a crowded street. Since being shared, the post has garnered all sorts of comments.

Here's what Harsh Goenka tweeted:

In the 51-seconds video, a young man can be seen riding a self-balancing electric scooter amid heavy traffic. As the video moves further, the man can be seen maneuvering through traffic.

While sharing the video, Goenka said, "This is what I need to travel in my crowded city. So cool!" Although many loved the idea of having a personal transporter like the one in the video, few raised questions about its safety while using it in heavy traffic. Several others said that the man in the video wasn't wearing any safety gear, including a helmet.
