Less than breaking news I need to clear off of the hard drive. People have been motorizing skateboards since the 70’s. Most of those contraptions resulted in big clunky boards, but someone has moved the motor off the board. This is the Skate Scepter, what the inventor calls a “Motorized Skater Assist.” Basically, it’s a weed eater that pushes you on your board. To be fair, they appear to be well designed. They even have a disk brake! Might be fun to goof around with, but not for the kind of scratch that they cost. You can check the web site for pictures and video. And, because these type of companies tend to go out of business quickly. I’ve archived aome pictures for posterity. [Source: Absolute Gadget]
