HoverSkater Skateboard: Back to the Past

HoverSkater Skateboard: Back to the Past
No, inventor Jim Pitts didn’t quite replicate Back to the Future‘s hoverboard. His HoverSkater is a combination of a hovercraft and a longboard. It’s most likely the most affordable hovercraft you can get. I’m just not sure if you should get one.

Is the Segway just not doing it for you? Maybe you want a Segway that is a bit more sporty and youthful. The Onewheel may be just what you are looking for.

These dice are proof that your board can live on long after you do your last Ollie. Your board will still be with you, you just won’t be riding it.

3D printing has come a long way, and it’s going to go even further, when everyone can easily purchase an affordable and fast 3D printer for their homes. We’ve seen lots of intriguing items output using 3D printing tech, and now a Dutch artist created this 3D printed skateboard.

Skateboard Lamp Great for Doing Faceplants from Your Ceiling
I was always pretty good at the Tony Hawk: Pro Skater games, pulling off mad combo moves thanks to generous use of manuals between tricks. Unfortunately, the second I hop on a real skateboard, forget about it.

Lagrange L1 Turns Any Skateboard into an Electric Vehicle… for a Price
A new project has landed on Kickstarter that looks pretty interesting. The project is for a skateboard truck (the axle assembly) that has provisions for electric motor and controls. When attached to a traditional skateboard deck, the Lagrange L1 converts it into an electric vehicle.

Grove MapleXO SkateBacks: For iPhone Skatepunks

Grove MapleXO SkateBacks: For iPhone Skatepunks
The last time we mentioned Grove, they had made a pretty cool iPhone case made from skateboard scraps. However, they were available as a limited edition, so there weren’t probably enough for everyone who wanted one, and they also cost more than $200.

Rockboard Descender Skateboard Moves with Tank Treads
Are you ready to ride your skateboard like it is a tank? Check out Rockboard’s Descender board. This baby is outfitted with treads that are wrapped around heavy-duty rollers. That means that it will go over terrain that normal skateboards could never handle.

I’m no skateboarder and never have been, but if I was, I would definitely get the Snap Folding Skateboard. I’d probably break my neck, but still. It makes it super easy to carry your board with you anywhere.

ZBoard Motorized Skateboard: Lean to Drive
We’ve seen motorized skateboards in the past, but this may be the best one yet. Ben Forman and Geoff Larson started the ZBoard project as a Senior year mechanical engineering project while at the University of Southern California, eventually leading to three years of development.

Board of Awesomeness Kinect Longboard Uses Everything but Your Feet to Make It Move
The Kinect was designed to make it easier for us to command software, but the guys at Chaotic Moon Labs knew they could make it move actual objects. The result? The Board of Awesomeness, a motorized longboard that relies on video recognition, speech recognition, gesture recognition, location data, accelerometer data and more to make it move.

LANDBEARSHARK Motorized Skateboard with Treads: Another Way to Die?

LANDBEARSHARK Motorized Skateboard with Treads: Another Way to Die?
Ever since I first saw motorized skateboards, I always thought that there were a really great way to get around. Now that I’m older and saner, I know for a fact that these contraptions can’t be too safe, especially when you don’t have many ways of slowing down.

Scarpar is Part Tank and Part Skateboard

Scarpar is Part Tank and Part Skateboard
Last year we talked a bit about the Scarpar off-road skateboard thingy. It looks like a skateboard, but it is made to run off-road and has no normal wheels to roll on. Some off-road boards just have large wheels on each corner.
