Altered Electric Skateboards – Wireless Speed Control

at 5:03 am. Filed under Complex Hacks, Cool Gadgets, Crazy Hacks

 

If skateboard speed matters then a board by Altered Electric Skateboards may be the board for you. All you need is the wireless speed controller in hand and a passion for the open road (or at least a big parking lot). How long will it be before we see a DIY model that is faster than this one?

"How does it work? and how does it Start & Stop? The board is powered by a 24V or 36V electric motor using sealed batteries as an energy source. Boards are controlled with a handheld wireless controller that offers a variable throttle and motor braking. You simply stand on the board and pull the trigger SLOWLY & SMOOTHLY to accelerate, and push the trigger forward GENTLEY to brake. CAUTION! the torque is strong at take off & full throttle, but using a smooth & even touch on the trigger allows the rider to apply only a small amount of power. It’s relatively simple to "roll the board along" at low speeds. Pushing forward on the controller’s trigger applies resistance to the skateboard’s motor, providing an effective braking system on flat ground. The board can be controlled effectively down mild/gradual grade hills with the braking system. Note, that the braking system does not bring the board to a total stop, and it should never be relied on. In many cases you can go down a gradual hill with ease, whereas on the same hill with a "regular" longboard you could lose control. Or you can do big slalom turns on the flats at either fast or slow speeds, and you can speed up or slow down."
