This electric skateboard can go 20 miles an hour

"At last, an electric skateboard that's not just a novelty." Until the StarkBoard ($599 for preorder) came along, e-boards were almost universally slow and a pain to charge. Worse, they required riders to use a remote to accelerate. The StarkBoard, by contrast, reaches 20 mph, has a battery that can be swapped out in a flash, and seems to know exactly where you want to go: Just lean forward to move forward and step off to stop. The board runs 12.4 miles on a charge and has LED lights for nighttime travel. It will start shipping in May.
