Remember Segways? They were supposed to be transportation of the future, but now they’re just a silly trend we’ll laugh at in 10 years when we see them on VH1′s “I Love the ’00s.” Segways were for rich yuppies, but the ZBoard ain’t your rich trustfund beneficiary’s skateboard. Electric skateboards are nothing new, but this one is weight-sensing, much like the Silly Seg. Kicking and Pushing is so Lupe Fiasco’s first single (you probably don’t get that reference), but with the ZBoard you won’t have to.
“To ride simply lean forward on the front footpad to accelerate and lean back on the rear footpad to brake.”
The Z has a top speed of 17 mph and can go 5-10 miles without needing to be re-charged. The boards start shipping this month so go click right here to get yourself one for $499, and/or check the video below.
