Totally geeky, dude! This skateboard has an onboard electronic motor that can be controlled by the user leaning forward to accelerate or backward to slow down or brake. If this is too much exercise, the user can wirelessly control the board via bluetooth technology using a cellular phone-like remote control. Groundsurf, designed by Ratleads, is set to make its debut in 2008.
Implications - Technology is constantly being incorporated into the world of transportation. Ideas such as bluetooth skateboards and hands-free calling are constantly being integrated to help safety as well as multitasking. Audiences spend most of their day travelling, therefore technology is being offered to be more appealing to travellers.
