The Post Modern Skateboard

The Post Modern SkateboardMany people have a definite idea of what a skateboard looks like. After all, a few things have changed since it first came out during the 1940’s. Well, the early ones were made out of wooden boxes or boards with roller skate wheels attached to them, the basic concept for skateboards has remained the same. Others see no need for changing the classic design because it is functional, convenient, and it works. But still others may have imagined how skateboards may look like in the future. The Post Modern Skateboard may give them a glimpse.

The Post Modern Skateboard is a pair of annular skates that propels the rider by leaning side to side. This allows users to skateboard without having to push their feet on the ground to move. No, it does not have any motors in it even if it looks like it has. You simple use some physical energy to make it move. When you actually look at it, the Post Modern Skateboard may actually be a cross between a skateboard and roller skates. You move around by moving your feet just like roller skates. But you do it in a sideways motion and you move forward on one side, just like a skateboard. Because the wheels are not connected to each other, it is easy to perform tricks such as 720-degree spins. The 10-inch wheels even allow riders to travel through short grass and dirt surfaces, areas that roller skates or skateboards may not work. The Post Modern Skateboard is surely an interesting take on the classic skateboard. It is available at Hammacher Schlemmer for $100.
