The J-Force eBoard is Controlled By a Wearable Glove

The J-Force eBoard is an electric-propelled board that was unsurprisingly created in the country that's possibly the most obsessed with electric surfboards, Germany. This fantastic board is capable of hitting speeds of 55 km/h in the open water. One of the coolest features of the eBoard is the fact that users control it using a wearable glove rather than the usual handheld controller.

This innovatively designed board is powered by a 15-horsepower electric two-jet drive that propels the rider forward across the water at speeds greater than that of the Lampuga, which once held the title of world's fastest electric surfboard.

However the J-Force eBoard's coolest feature is certainly its wearable controller. We've seen a lot of interesting applications for wearable controllers but its use on an electric surfboard is certainly one of the coolest.
