Rocketskates are worn over regular shoes
The user accelerates by tilting the lead skate forward, and decelerates by putting their heel down
Their maximum speed is 12 mph (19 km/h), and the range depends on the model chosen
Back in 2010, we first heard about inventor Peter Treadway's concept for powered wheeled footwear that also allowed the user to walk under their own power when desired. Two years later, the concept was the subject of a Kickstarter campaign, in the form of spnKiX motorized skates. Now, Treadway has returned to Kickstarter with an improved take on the original idea, known as Acton R Rocketskates.
