WATCH: Mike Tyson Wipes Out While Riding a Pink Hoverboard

A hoverboard knocks Mike Tyson down but not out. Check out his Instagram.

Another great use for the hoverboard: a supreme test of an athlete's balance. It is not an easy test to pass, even for some athletes who have exhibited great control and agility in their sport.

Enter Mike Tyson. The former heavyweight boxing champ recently posted a video to his Instagram in which he tries out a hoverboard, self-assured, laughing with confidence and gratification. In the background, his daughter says, "Daddy, I don't want you to fall."  Tyson hits the edge of the carpet, and you can guess what happens next.

The hoverboard is not simply a test of balance, but also a lesson in humility.
