A skateboard that's smarter than you (maybe)

A custom-built electric skateboard with remote control capabilities and obstacle detection - includes night light features for riding in darker environments. Our remote control uses "novel technologies" ranging from heart rate detection to the angle of the rider's hat to ultimately determine the skateboard's speed.
