Electric Wheel on a Stick

It is an electrically powered wheel on a stick. That’s what it is. It’s called the “speedBat.” But it is so much more. You ever been inline-skating and just got totally tired of pumping but really basically just wanted to continue to go fast forward? See what’s going on here yet? Yeah? Yeah. Auto-skate time is now.

What the speedBat consists of is a small electric motor, a stick, and a really nice adjustable multi-function handle. That’s it! For those of you who’ve had their dog pull them speedily down the street, so fast that you fall right on your face and continue to get dragged until your whole face is ripped off!!!! -well, this is for you.

Also since I’m sure someone’ll mention it: the stick gets traction from the weight of the motor. It’s no light venture here mang. Take a peek at the video and wish for a flat top.

  • That’s ridiculous. Useless. How are you going to do anything interesting?

      I THINK THERE IS A GOOD IDEA IN THERE BUT THAT IS NOT IT, LOSE THE STICK (GOOD THREE POINT CONTACT) IT MET TO BE A BIPED EXPERIENCE, REDUCE MOTOR TO WHEEL SIZE WHICH CAN BE REMOVED OR ATACHED. AND A WIRELESS CONTROLER AND ITS KOOL. WIRELESS DYNAMO.

    why not just use your legs to move, I thought the whole idea behind roller blading was exercise…

  • tudza says:

    Perhaps *your* whole idea of inline skating was to get exercise. Looks like some people have other ideas.

    I like this way more than any scheme for motorizing the skates themselves.
