    Monolith: Inboard Sports’ “First Skateboard With In-Wheel Motors”

    I assume I’m not alone when I admit that I actually don’t know that much about motorized skateboards. They’re not exactly popular, especially compared to their traditional non-motored brethren, which probably has something to do with the bulky motors that have characterized them up to this point.

    I don’t even remember the last time I blew a bubble, which just goes to show that whenever it happened, it wasn’t very memorable. But maybe if I’d kept at it, I could have become a bubble magician like Su Chung Tai, who does for bubbles what Brian Eno does for beeps. Su Chung Tai […]
