Motorized Skates from 1962, Narrated with Fallout-Esque Voiceover [Video]

Motorized Skates

In 1962, Tom Hancocks unveiled his motorized skates on TV, capturing a moment of suburban life as his daughter, Reg, rode along. Originally designed for weary soldiers during WWII, these skates now served an entirely new purpose, ferrying Reg to work. A near-tumble at a sudden stop added suspense to the journey, all narrated with a voiceover reminiscent of the retro style in the Fallout video game series.

Also, here is another pair of motorized skates (with no video), from 1952!
