SpnKiX Electric Roller Skates
You probably have always thought a Segway looked cool. Maybe you enjoy roller skating down the sidewalk or across campus. What if you could combine those two? The SpnKiX Rocket Skates, or electric roller skates, do exactly that. You can go scooting down the sidewalk at 8 MPH with almost zero effort.
The electric roller skates are powered by a pair of rechargeable lithium batteries that provide up to 40 minutes of running power, which gets you about 5 to 6 miles down the road. Then you will need to stop and recharge these cool skates for about 4 hours before you take off again. The speed is controlled by a simple handheld remote which you can use to brake, or you can do the traditional skate drag to engage the electric brake and come to a gentle stop.
The SpnKiX are priced at $699, making the much cheaper than a Segway, and more fun, too.
