The future belongs to the Onewheel—a one-wheeled electric skateboard that’s self-balancing and battery-powered.
The rider leans forward to accelerate, back to slow down, and side-to-side to turn. The skateboard can reach speeds up to 12 mph, and has a range of up to six miles. And if you invest in the “ultra charger,” you can charge the Onewheel in less than 30 minutes. (The standard charger takes about two hours.)
… The company estimates the product will ship this December.
Pre-order for $1,499 (includes ultra charger)
