New Nike Electric Skateboard Concept

South Korean industrial designer Jaehyuk Lim came up with this interesting concept for the Nike Cruiser Board, an electric personal transportation device that is easy to use, charge and carry around. “A lot of people are using the Personal Mobility But when you’re not using Personal Mobility, it’s very hard to carry around. I designed the Personal mobility device, which is easy to carry and charge at the same time. Most boarders carry their boards by hand when they’re not using them. When you docking in ‘Cruiser Backpack’, you can recharge the board”. And don’t forget to check other electric skateboard StarkBoard.

StarkBoard – New Hands-Free Electric Skateboard

The StarkBoard is a cross between a skateboard and a Segway. The intelligent board responds to the movement of your body to propel it forward and to stop it in its tracks. That’s all thanks to a collection of weight and motion sensors that allow you to ride without a remote control, which is nice because you’re riding a skateboard, not giving a PowerPoint presentation. And since it only takes about three minutes to learn, you can hop on and start carving up the streets in no time. StarkBoard boasts a top speed of 20 miles per hour and a range of 12 miles, meaning it’s ideal for short commutes or just getting around town, and the powerful HUB motors allow for climbing up 15% inclines and for carrying gear with you. Outfitted with bright LED lights and a weatherproof build, the StarkBoard is your new urban transport board.

The Worlds First Compactable Electric Skateboard EXO

EXO (an abbreviation of “exoskeleton”) denotes the aesthetic behind this E-Boards skeletal construction. Taking the interpretation of a personal electric skateboard and turning on its head, the board was designed with the intention of being the worlds first compactable electric skateboard that not only looks entirely unique, but also functions like no other. Simple to understand at a glance and highly intuitive when being used, the rider simply depresses and pivots the board’s individual pedals, which in turn operates the two 150W motors located at the base of each wheel. Acceleration, braking and steering can all be determined by the users feet. The board is able to determine which foot is placed in the front, and can change the orientation of the electric motors quickly to accommodate. On either side of the wheel is an inlet fan for cooling the electric motors and an outlet vent to let the hot air escape from inside the wheel. This is a new interpretation of air-cooled technology. When the board is required to be packed into a smaller space, or to be carried, the user simply has to press the red button located in the centre of the board. Once the button is depressed the board can be manipulated into its compacted shape.
