The Onewheel Glides its Way to CES 2014

The exceptionally modern and super enhanced Onewheel skateboard has a singular wheel and runs on an electric 500 W direct drive motor.

The skateboard has clearly evolved from its chunky, wooden origins. With an electric motor in its one wheel (talk about compact design) controlling balance using "gyrometers, accelerometers and motion sensing algorithms," the Onewheel skateboard claims to give those riding the board the treat of flight-like senses when soaring over pavement.

For those of you who still have their mad skateboarding skills (or any board sport skills) intact, getting on the Onewheel should be a breeze; and with a top speed of 12 mph, it's safe enough for the youngsters and speedy enough for us adults who want to jump-start our pace.
