I was never into skateboarding when I was a kid. Mostly it was because I saw a friend smash his goobers trying to do a trick and figured I was better off with a bike. Skateboards are all fine and good, but some folks are always out to geek things up.

Such is the case with this cool high-tech skateboard. The thing is motorized and is controlled by leaning. Lean forward and the thing goes forward, lean back and it goes in reverse. The good news is that it looks too heavy for tricks so your gonads should be safe.

It's apparently 33 pounds and still in the development stage. The designers figure by 2013 it will be slimmed down enough to sell to the public. I'd rather have the sweet hover board that was in Back to the Future.
