If you don’t fancy building your very own Raspberry Pi electric skateboard, you might be interested in a new solar electric skateboard that has been created by Center Young and aptly named the YoungBoard.
The YoungBoard only requires four hours of sunlight to fully charge the onboard Lithium polymer battery and is then capable of reaching a maximum speed of 30 km/h and offers a range of up to 16 km.
The solar electric skateboard is equipped with an electronic brake and also includes a handy USB charging cable that can be used to top up your smartphone or tablet whilst out and about. Check out the video below to learn more about this unique skateboard.
YoungBoard has this week started its campaign over on the Kickstarter crowdfunding website looking to raise €25,000 to go into production. Its developers explain more about the electric skateboards inspiration and design.
