Teenager Paid $800,000 For A Bunch Of Supreme Skate Decks In An Auction

If, after reading the headline, you are asking what the hell are you doing with your life, well, you are not alone. I was asking myself the same. Why am still here furiously typing on an aging MacBook Pro on an aging Apple Wireless Keyboard and look an aging Apple Cinema Display for a paltry return instead of raising my hand in a cool ass manner to bid for something that cost hundreds of thousands. Alas, life doesn’t favor everyone like in the case of 17-year-old Carson Guo. Continue reading Teenager Paid $800,000 For A Bunch Of Supreme Skate Decks In An Auction

Razer Chroma Is Coming To Electric Cars And Electric Skateboards

Razer‘s ingenious RGB lighting solution, Chroma, was originally conceived as a means of immersive gaming experience. But we heard that Chroma is stepping out to beyond gaming. No. It is not a Razer Chroma Toaster, or any appliance for that matter. It is much bigger than a toaster. Razer Chroma is getting inside cars in China too, as announced by electric car startup Leapmotor in an unveiling event (and reported by Windows Central earlier this month).

3D Printed Titanium Skateboard Truck Is A Possibly That’s Very Expensive

3D printed titanium is a luxury that’s probably reserved for companies like Bugatti. Since after VW’s Bugatti revealed the world’s first 3D printed titanium brake caliper, it has went on and got the innovative brake caliper tested. The test vindicated the power of titanium when under the duress of extreme heat which, if you think of it, makes absolute sense because of intense heat generated when stopping one of the world’s fastest cars, but on a skateboard, specifically the trucks? Well, lets just say it is way an overkill for a significantly less stressful application. Continue reading 3D Printed Titanium Skateboard Truck Is A Possibly That’s Very Expensive

Believe It Or Not, IKEA USA Is Selling Skateboard Too

You can find skateboard being sold everywhere. However, the last place you probably expect to find skateboards is IKEA. Well, as it turns out, Ikea USA indeed do sell skateboards and it is called IKEA Spänst Skateboard Cruiser. Spänst is, btw, no way related to skateboard. It is loosely translated to “elasticity.” Is IKEA trying to say its skateboard is flexible like rubber? That, I do not know. Jokes, aside, Spänst is not quite the name of the skateboard; it is a collection. Continue reading Believe It Or Not, IKEA USA Is Selling Skateboard Too

Free Skate Is Like The Lovechild Of A Skateboard And Inline Skate

In Today I Learn, we found there is such a thing called Free Skates (not to be confused with figure skating’s free skating segment, btw). No. Free Skate does not mean the skates are free. So, what the heck is Free Skates, anyways? Well, it is sort of like a cross between inline skates, AKA Rollerblades, (but with less wheels) and a skateboard. Just imagine a skateboard being split into two halves with each half sporting two wheels in an inline configurations. Continue reading Free Skate Is Like The Lovechild Of A Skateboard And Inline Skate

Meet The Truly Hands-free Electric Skateboard, The Zenboard

Skateboard is old news and electric skateboard isn’t exactly new either, but most electric skateboard we have seen thus far threaded cautiously in the area of control. Almost all of them comes with an external control, a remote of sort, or at least, controllable via an app on your smartphone. Not the Australia’s Zenboard Handsfree Electric Skateboard. Zenboard boldly goes where no skateboard makers dare to go, by going absolutely hands free. Continue reading Meet The Truly Hands-free Electric Skateboard, The Zenboard

Designer Built An Electric skateboard That His Cat Can Control

Usually, cats will be scare shit when you push them along a skateboard, let alone leaving a cat on a board that propels itself, but not in the case of designer, photographer and inventor, Kim Pimmel’s feline friend. In this latest “pet projects” experiment, he built an electric skateboard for his kitty friend. And mind you, it is not a remotely controlled board. That would be far too mundane. This creation of his is an electric skateboard that is moved by the cat’s own accord. Continue reading Designer Built An Electric skateboard That His Cat Can Control

Meet A New Kind Of Skateboard That Has Just 3 Wheels And Self-Balances

The purveyor ridiculously expensive stuff, Hammacher Schlemmer, is no stranger to selling small mobility devices like skateboard, scooter and stuff, but this one here, called Tomoloo Dragon Knight H3 3-Wheel Skateboard, is different. Firstly, it is a skateboard that has just three wheels. It looks like kids’ skatescooter but without the handle. Secondly, it is, well, self-balancing, so you can enjoy zipping around at up to 17 mph (27 km/h) without being bothered by balancing which, really, isn’t that hard. But hey, if you prefer machine to do the job for you, then this is it. Continue reading Meet A New Kind Of Skateboard That Has Just 3 Wheels And Self-Balances

Track1 Is A Half-track Skateboard That Wants To Take On Any Terrain

You know what fascinates us with regards to off-road (skate)board? Track(s). If it has track(s), we are already half-sold. Just half. So, naturally, when we first lay eyes on the Track1, we are, well, half-sold. Though we can’t say the same for the price. But more on that later. Seriously, look at this thing. It has oversized wheels wrapped in off-road requisite knobby tires and a wide, low-profile track that makes it perfect for some serious all-terrain actions. And it is not just any track. The track was designed from the ground up for Track1 and it is where the magic is being turned out. Continue reading Track1 Is A Half-track Skateboard That Wants To Take On Any Terrain
