Unveiled at this year’s CES 2012, the Board of Awesomeness has been brought to our attention by a team from Chaotic Moon. In fact, this may be the team you’d least expect to come up with something like this. The objective of the mobile app-making studio was to take on the “mobile” aspect of its business to the next level.
The electric skateboard is equipped with a Kinect Sensor fixed to the front of a longboard so it faces back at the rider to detect their movements and gestures. These are translated into commands used to control the board’s 800 watt electric motor, which is powered by a 36 volt battery and can carry the rider at speeds of up to 32 mph. The all-terrain tyres means that the board can also head off road!
