Acton R RocketSkates

Since the beginning time, man has sought to traverse the expanse between A and B in the most efficient and stimulating way possible. Acton R RocketSkates fulfill these urges with stimulus to spare. These electric, motorized skates strap to your shoes, giving your everyday kicks a rest while taking them along for the ride. Each skate has two motors and an onboard microprocessor all powered by a lithium-ion battery pack and with a range of 6 to 10 miles depending on the model. Just strap on, kick off and start rolling: lean forward to accelerate and reverse the process to slow. The skates even communicate with each other to make sure your speed and maneuverability is in balance. Without the need for a cumbersome remote you can focus on more than silly buttons and extend the lines of communication with mere pedestrians with select hand gestures. And if you lose track of time while skating and run the battery flat, their unique design let you walk mostly unencumbered without having to unstrap.
