NYC designer Jin-Seok Hwang has created the unique concept of a folding skateboard.
This collapsible board is probably not meant for the daily hardcore skater, but it is extremely portable as you can just stick it into your backpack. Although the Foldable Skate Deck Concept looks cool and is highly efficient, the centre hinge looks like it will snap at any second!
Implications - In today's society, many people are expected to carry around their belongings with them at all times. Cell phones and laptops have become extremely portable, and now other items are following in technology's footprints. Businesses that make their items easily portable, like the featured skateboard, will fit the needs of busy people who are always on the go.
