Methods of assisted pedestrian transportation are gradually increasing as technology progresses. Motorized roller skates were developed by Acton to afford consumers a completely unique means to travel from A to B. The company's experience in designing scooters -- in conjunction with inspiration from classic roller skates -- influenced the function of these powered-up vehicles that bind directly to your shoes.

It would probably take a good amount of practice to keep your balance while wearing a pair of RocketSkates. Keeping good alignment with your feet too may not come naturally to everyone. Once you've become comfortable with the two-wheeled mechanized boots, you can reach speeds up to 12 miles per hour. As futuristic as they seem, they were already on the market in time for CES 2015.
