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

Check out this cool electric skateboard these guys made. Thanks Frank for letting me get on it.

Wow, check out this awesome homemade balancing skateboard. As a skateboarder myself, this is way too cool…

It’s very similar to a snowboard to ride, requiring no user input other than the movement of your body mass. Leaning forwards and backwards controls the velocity and moving your weight from heal to toe controls the turn radius. It’s easy and very intuitive to ride.

DIY HACK – HOW TO Make your own drill powered skateboard!

Here’s a great way to make a drill powered skateboard! Why didn’t I think of think when I used to skateboard all the time when I was skateboard commuting in college? You could probably find a better way to make this so you can stand up while the drill powers you through some nice asphalt. The example above seems very dangerous though, you could get your hand caught between the asphalt and the drill and…yuck…that wouldn’t be nice.
