Tantek Çelik: #HouseOfCards s2e1 was good. But the best thing yesterday was getting to try a Boosted electric skateboard: http://boostedboards.com/ Amazing. Handheld trigger remote control via Bluetooth. Forward and reverse. And I only tried it in "turtle" mode. In "rabbit" mode it can apparently do 20 miles an hour. Up hill. Jetsons-like motor sound included. Forget about Segway, Boosted's electric skateboard feels like an object from the future dropped into the present, more in the realm of Marty's hoverboard (Back To The Future II & III) and Y.T.'s Smartwheels skateboard (Snow Crash).

@t woah that looks amazing — also loving their detailed, transparent blog (very similar tone to blog.technical.io) and selfdogfood framing e.g. "what would we want on our own personal longboards?".

Presumably you’re already aware of the brain-controlled skateboard?
