KickStick Is An Electric Oar That Can Propel You Up To 30mph On A Skateboard

This is pretty cool, but you absolutely have to watch the video to get why. KickStick, by Rise Robotics, is a tool to help skateboard riders get speed. It’s a long stick with a wheel at the end; you put the wheel down and lean into the stick, which will then drive you forward at up to 30mph. It’s pressure sensitive, so the more you lean on the stick, the faster you go. The wheel can generate up to 2.75hp, which is more than enough power to get you going. And with swappable batteries, you can keep going as far as you want. The stick collapses for easy transport, too. There’s no range or price information, but the company plans to launch on IndieGogo in the coming weeks, and you can sign up to be notified.
