Xbox Kinect Skateboard aka The Board Of Awesomeness!

As you might know, the Xbox Kinect is a amazing invention that makes you use your body to interact in videogames. However the people at Chaotic Labs decided to take body motion-control to a whole new level by strapping a Kinect to a 32 mph, all-terrain longboard. Woohoo now we’re talking baby…

The Kinect acts as a control interface, allowing the rider to speed up and slow down by simply pushing their hands forward or pulling them back. The brains of the machine are contained within a voice-activated Samsung tablet and the brawn of the “board of awesomeness” is provided by a 800 watt electric motor.
