Self-Balancing Electric Skateboard – Onewheel

Onewheel_03

Designer crew of this extraordinary skateboard were looking to replicate Marty McFly’s hoverboard from Back to the Future. Onewheel is like snowboarding on powder or surfing a wave, but no mountain or ocean is required. Just a flat paved surface. Light heel or toe pressure carves turns and can even turn 360 degrees within the length of the board. Unlike a skateboard, you don’t feel every little crack and pebble in the street. Instead you roll over them on the 11inch air filled racing gokart tire, a miniature version of an F1 tire.
Available only on Kickstarter, Onewheel starts at $1199 for the first early bird kickstarter backers. $1299 for the base model Onewheel, with custom colors and high speed charging available as options.
Onewheel inventor and chief engineer Kyle Doerksen spent 8 years at IDEO designing consumer and technical products and holds multiple engineering degrees from Stanford. He also helped found Faraday Bikes, an electric bicycle startup in San Francisco CA.
