Cool New Battery Operated Board, Blows a Segway Away [VIDEO]

Can you imagine how much gas you would save using a motorized board to get to and from work? Or how about pulling up to school on one of these? It’s not a hover-board like Marty McFly had in “Back to The Future” , but it is closer than ever!

It is a new invention called the “One Wheel” and it works by the person riding it propelling their body like a “Segway”, but you can tuck it under our arm and carry it like a skateboard. Plus to charge it you can simply plug it in like you do your laptop. It can top out at speeds up to 12 miles per hour with an average speed of 4-5 miles per hour.

Of course you would realistically use it for short distances, but you could probably bring it on a bus with you for longer commutes. Of course this is not for everyone in that you would need a good sense of balance like on a skateboard, but since it may be on the market later this year, I can think of a kid or two that would love to get this!
