For anyone who is a regular commuter, but lacks the storage space for a bicycle – yes, even the folding types require too much room for some – or you don’t want to lug around a bunch of gear on and off the train or bus, an electric skateboard might just be the answer to your troubles. And if you’re still concerned about minimizing storage space, good news! Out of Singapore comes “the most portable electric skateboard in the world,” the Arc Board.
Using a simple wireless remote, a 6300mAh LiFePo4 Battery Pack with Battery Management System, and with enough battery capacity to take the average person up to 11.3 miles on a single charge, this 7.7 pound 22-inch board can reach speeds of 16 miles an hour and even ascend hills of up to a 15% grade. That means you can make it between the train, trolley, or bus station and work without worry of getting stranded and getting a little bit of a thrill at the same time. And it reaches a full charge in just 70 minutes. When they officially go up for sale, these little electric cruisers will retail for $999 USD. [Purchase]
