There are gaps in our transportation infrastructure, for trips that are too far away to walk comfortably, but too close to take the bus or car. For these instances, a device like the Bolt, the World’s Smallest Electric Skateboard, is awesome. Measuring only 23.5-inches long and 10-inches wide, and weighing in at a very reasonable 8.8lbs, the Bolt is extremely portable. But when it’s on the road, it’s able to carry a rider up to 6.5 miles on a charge, at up to 10mph, with a 1 hour recharge time. That’s just enough for a daily commute to school, or to get some groceries at that convenience store that’s just a couple of blocks too far for you to feel like actually walking to it. The battery can also be used to recharge your electronics, and can even be controlled remotely since it does connect to your smartphone. Control is achieved through a handheld remote, and a powerful 2,000 Watt motor should be able to handle riders of most sizes. To get your own you’ll have to pre-order it for $599. It was successfully funded on Indiegogo, but deliveries aren’t slated to start until October of this year.
