Electric skateboards are cool, in a dorky kind of way. We were impressed by the "Board of Awesomeness", which was controlled by a wave of your hands via a Kinect. But here's the future: a skateboard controlled by your brain.


Created by Chaotic Moon Labs, this follow-up to the Board of Awesomeness is referred to as the Board of Imagination, and it's controlled by the power of thought. The rider wears an Emotiv EPOC headset, which picks up signals from the brain and sends them to a Samsung tablet. As the rider imagines a point in the distance to which they'd like to travel, software detects changing brain signals, and the board starts rolling. At up to 32 mph.

Hey, it might not be entirely safe, but it is incredibly cool. [Chaotic Moon Labs via The Verge]
