The Next Best Thing to a Hoverboard: The OneWheel Electric Skateboard

onewheelThe folks at OneWheel ( are developing perhaps the coolest electric skateboard concept ever.

As you may have guessed there is only one wheel. The platform is stable due to gyroscopic stabilization. You steer by repositioning your body weight forward, backward to either side or in combination as you get better at it.

Initial training takes about a minute. It can go up to 6 miles on a charge depending on your terrain. And it can recharge in 20 minutes.

Their Kickstarter program is already well beyond their initial target and still going for a few more days.

Our opinion? Want it!
