Uncanny Factoid: Vroom Wheelies (3 pics)

Take a min and go back to your childhood with these skates, that are more than just a fun way to spend the afternoon.

With a 350 watt motor and a 13.5 mph top speed these skates can move you around town without spending a ton of money on gasoline.  You don’t have to take your shoes off either; you just slide them into the skates and lock them in before taking off in these motorized roller skates.

Although the concept needs hammered out a wee bit as it seems a bit unsafe, due to the controls being connected directly to the skates themselves, it might be the wave of the future as gas prices continue to rise.

These electric skates have been featured in a few magazines already including National Geographic, Pioneer Press, Colson Caster PR, MN Daily, and even the New York Post. They still aren’t on the market yet, they are waiting for more investors. If you like them then perhaps you might invest!

 

Learn Something Fun: In the early 1700’s in Holland, an unknown Dutchman decided to go ice skating in the summer, ice skating was the widespread method used in the Netherlands to travel the numerous frozen canals in winter. The unknown inventor accomplished dry land skating by nailing wooden spools to strips of wood and attaching them to his shoes. 'Skeelers' was the nickname given to the new dry-land skaters.
