The Aeyo scooter from Munich's Aemotics

If there's a way to move your legs, there's probably a cycle or scooter that takes advantage of it. We thought we'd seen them all, but after stumbling upon the Aeyo at this week's ISPO Munich show, we realized there's always another wild, new design out there.

The Onewheel

I don't know about you, but I know that when I pop out on my electric skateboard to do a spot of shopping, I always find myself thinking "hello – this would even more exciting with three fewer wheels."

Australian Daz Fellows wants to ensure proper nomenclature is used when describing his modified street luge.

The Ungoverned is a powered board designed to tackle everything from rocks to snow

In its early days, skateboarding was known in some circles as "sidewalk surfing," but lately we've seen a number of powered boards designed to leave the street behind and head off road. In 2009 we looked at one such prototype board known as the Scarpar Powerboard. The inventor of that board, Dan Baldwin, has now developed another prototype all-terrain board called the Ungoverned that is designed to tackle everything from rocks to snow.  Read More
