Onewheel Self-Balancing Electric Skateboard! (w/video)
We’ve already seen some cool battery-electric skateboards, but boy this is one rides on one wheel – literally. And its name is Onewheel.
The team behind the project of developing Onewheel has been at it for 5 years now and recently tried to raise some money on >Kickstarter.
As of Thursday, 11-days before the end of the Kicstarter program, they had over $215,000 from a base goal of $100,000 so we’re thinking Onewheel is headed for production.
The more money raised, the more feature Onewheel will have (like an app for smartphones and LED lights).
Onewheel has 500 W in-wheel electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack good for 4-6 miles. Then, standard 2-hour or fast 20-minute recharge is needed.
Deliveries to Kickstarter backers (from $1,299) should start in second half of the year.
