Zboard | Weight-sensing Electric Skateboard

Sometime ago we showed you the "Fiik Skateboard" an electric skateboard controlled by a remote in your hand. The ZBoard however, is a hands free electric skateboard. The ZBoard is weight-sensing, to ride simply lean forward on the front footpad to accelerate and lean back on the rear footpad to brake. The boards go on sale from April 2012, but are available now for pre-order.
