Electric skateboards have been a round for a while, but most if not all of them currently use some form of wired/wireless handheld controller to operate them, not the ZBoard. The ZBoard Electric Skateboard uses two pressure sensitive pads located on the front and rear of the board. Lean forward and you go faster, lean back and you slow down.
The ZBoard uses a 400W motor, has regenerative brakes (like a Prius), a top speed of 17 MPH, and a 10 mile range. The board comes in a Pro model ($749) and a Classic Model ($499). Time to call your solar company installer and go totally green. If you were charging your electric skateboard from solar panels you would have a carbon free commute.
