Well I Never!... Article-0-1F84735F00000578-610_634x604


While we wait for the hoverboard to arrive, one Los Angeles inventor has come up with a worthy stopgap - motorised roller skates.

RocketSkates are designed to be strapped on over regular footwear, and monitor foot movements to make them easy to control.

They also lets riders simply tip forward to stop, should they find themselves needing to climb stairs, for example.

Each skate has two hub motors controlled by an on-board microprocessor, and are powered by a lithium-ion battery pack.

When you want to let each skate's two hub motors do the work, you just tip your feet back so that only the rubber wheels make contact with the ground.

Should you need to do something like climbing stairs, however, you tip forward and walk on the balls of your feet.

From Here.
