Home / Computers/technology / Gadgets / Video: The Starkboard Lets You Roam Free!


Today's skaters can truck along effortlessly with the help of electric motors and wireless remotes. Some boards do not even need handheld controllers to "know" when to speed up or slow down, it simply uses inboard sensors to detect the rider's intent. The StarkBoard makes use of weight and motion sensors to get you rolling.

"The StarkBoard is completely controlled by your body's natural movements," says Stark Mobility. The StarkBoard is a sensor-packed electric skateboard and can be mastered in just 3 minutes, it simply involved stepping on, leaning forward and moving off into the majestic sunset.

The electric skateboard has a top speed of 32km/h and a range of 20 km per charge, which will get the wind blowing against your cheeks and you do not have to grip a hand remote, which makes the ride more natural. Stark reckons that its electric board's hub motors should be capable enough to handle 15 percent inclines and rough terrain, and the intelligent braking system will stop you rolling back down the hill if it proves too steep.

The battery pack is removable, so riders could carry a fully charged spare in a backpack to extend the adventure. The StarkBoard comes ready to ride out of the box, and its makers have developed a mobile app to tweak ride modes, check battery status and log ride stats.
Stark Mobility is currently raising production funds over on Indiegogo to bring the electric skateboard into production. The pledges start at $499, and if all goes according to plan, the first delivery is set to start in February 2018.
