Battery-Powered Rollerblading
These Skataz Electric Skates put the "King" in "Walking"

By: Jordan M (Rockstar) Mar 15, 11

Skataz Electric Skates are easily one of the coolest and most exciting inventions you’ll see in a long while and not just because it would be completely awesome to be able to zip around your neighborhood on battery-powered blades like Marty McFly from Back to the Future (albeit on a hovering skateboard).

Featuring battery-powered propulsion, Skataz Electric Skates are still only in their prototype phase, but it isn’t hard to see their appeal. By eliminating the need for exertion when using roller skates, Skataz Electric Skates could help shape the future of personal transportation—particularly in urban environments where discrete and compact technology is the name of the game. As of right now the project is looking for sponsors, so if you’ve got some cash to burn in the aim of bringing a childhood dream to life, definitely stop by and help them out.
