If you’ve always wanted to thrash on a skateboard but just didn’t have the time, the patience, or couldn’t figure out the balance, you may want to give Onewheel a try. Onewheel is an electronic-powered, self-balancing skateboard that uses a similar body style to its cousin while introducing a thick tire into the center as the only moving part. Sensors and control electronics take it from there.
All you have to do is lean forward to accelerate and back to slow down and stop. No hand controls necessary! Onewheel just finished a round of Kickstarter funding, but it’s still available through the company website for $1,499 plus shipping and handling. Click our Buy button to learn more.
