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. It seems to be using some kind of accelerometer. If they start selling these to kids, these would be way more cool than any Segways for sure.

Check out MetroMotive.com for more information. (Although it’s not updated right now, there’s an email contact)

    Unfortunately the board was stolen on the way back from the Faire in Portland, OR sometime on Tuesday night (the 22nd). If you have any information on its whereabouts, please contact us!

    Hey there Frank,
    Sorry to hear about the board being stolen. That sucks dude, but at least you can make a better one now. I am building a board for myself pretty similar to this one, but with a few different specifications. I was wondering if you could let me know a little more how it works. I’m probably going to use strain gauges to sense the weight dist. My email’s j_sartee@yahoo.com. Let me know,
