Science In Action: Skateboard Can Go Down Stairs [Video]

By simply modifying the “trucks” at each end, Royal College of Art graduate Po-Chih Lai created a skateboard that can tackle stairs with ease.

Called the Stair Rover, each set of wheels simply pivots, allowing the board (or “deck”) to accommodate right angles.

SCIENCE!

  1. neat, but this would have a small market. won't be able to have fun with this(ollie, tailslide, etc)

  2. meh…..boring, and it seems as if would only work on very shallow and wide steps. Beef it up.
    Apply the technology to something useful, wheelchairs, furniture moving dollys, etc.
