Check out this cool electric skateboard these guys made. Thanks Frank for letting me get on it. I was about to take off with it to my house… It’s an electric skateboard that goes forwards and backwards by simply putting your weight towards where you want to go.

Speed overhead is critical for safety in order to maintain balance du

The UNO, built by Ben Gulak, is essentially a 120-pound electric unicycle that balances itself with gyros and is capable of reaching 40MPH. The inventor initially began the project himself, but contacted robotics expert Trevor Blackwell later on to help reprogram the ECU. Currently, the vehicle is still in testing sta

Scooting about on a Stand-up Trike

Scooting about on a Stand-up Trike

Wow, check out this nifty Stand-Up Trike, tight! Will they send us a sample? (We will give it out as a prize if they do.)

Stephan Soder came up with the idea as a way to pull himself along while wearing rollerblades. He built the first one in his garage with a small petrol motor.

The commercial version is called the Easyglider X6 which riders can use with a skateboard or roller-blades or stand on a two-wheeled rear platform.

It features an electric-powered front wheel, a handbrake, a headlight, and three power levels. Optional extra
