from the rolling,-rolling,-rolling dept
For this week’s awesome stuff post on interesting crowdfunding projects, we’ll take a look at three separate projects that take the classic idea of a skateboard, and try to do something… different with them.
- The Chargeboard
Lots of people complain about cell phones running out of batteries, so some guy over in Amsterdam figured why not slap some dynamos on some skateboard trucks, add a powerbox and a connection, and boom, you’ve got the Chargeboard — a skateboard that will powerup your phone while you ride. Just, uh, try not to kick up any rocks into the face of the phone, I guess…
- Emery Skatebench
Yes, the the Emery Skatebench is a bench made out of a skateboard deck — which is not an entirely new concept, but the main differentiator here is also using skateboard wheels as the feet of the bench. The wheels can easily be locked if you want the bench to not move — or unlocked if you want it to roll (though I would imaging trying to skate on it is not recommended.
The SkatE-Pods are skateboard-like electric vehicles — and you can add a handlebar and make it into an electric scooter as well.
That’s it for this week — go outside and ride around on something with wheels…
