Shelly Palmer Radio Report – July 15, 2014

Why walk to work — or even bike — when you can get there with smart electric skates? ACTON recently launched a Kickstarter for RocketSkates, the world’s first smart electric skates. Each skate has two hub motors controlled by an on-board microprocessor, and the skates are able to communicate with one another so they maintain the same speed and behavior. The skates also communicate with a companion smartphone app, which includes features like route tracking, skate diagnosis, battery status and more. Best of all, the skates have no need for a remote control; they’re powered by lithium ion battery packs, meaning you get a completely hands-free experience. When the RocketSkates launch later this year, they’ll be available in three models – featuring battery life up to 90 minutes. The smart skates blew by their $50,000 Kickstarter goal on their second day. To learn more about RocketSkates — or to make sure you get a pair when they ship in October — head over to their Kickstarter page today.
