Dmitrii Borisov has taken to Kickstarter this week to launch his new crowdfunding campaign for his Smart electric skates, which can be controlled without the need for a hand controller. The unique electric skates are controlled by the position of your feet and can accelerate break or maintain a constant speed as you wish. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the new retro-styled electric skates.
The electric skates are equipped with sensors that allow them to accurately accelerate, break or maintain a steady speed depending on your feet position. The learning process is quick, and you don’t need any special skills to be able to enjoy the electric skates says developer Dmitrii. “With eight wheels and a freedom to position your legs as it is comfortable for you this is easy to keep your balance.” Electric skates are capable of providing a maximum speed of 25mph and offer no maximum range limit due to the replaceable battery power system, which combines with the 210watt motors, each skate weighs 7lbs.
The smart electric skates are now available to back via Kickstarter pledges available for $393. The full goes well, and the electric skates raise the required $39,000 to make the jump into production, delivery is expected to commence during May 2018. Unfortunately, the electric skates are only available for shipping throughout the United States.
