Longboards

Hey i love to ride my longboard… im a diy guy … who is not … i know lol

I just bought it recently off a friend for 50 dollars but its a water damaged 300 dollar board…
I took off the deck, sanded it and put some laquer over it
Ordered some new soft bushings and all kinds of awesome stuff online today…

but here it comes… i saw this guy on campus the other day… he had a longboard that was powerd by an emotor …
He was holding a wii controller and steering the board around with that … it was pretty incredible! I sped up and caught him… .we talked for a while about it … he said he used some stuff from his lab to make it …
Now that whole thing got me thinking … I should do something like that … anyone have any experience with it? using accelerometers … electric motors … longboards?

(sorry if my thoughts are bubbly in there but ive been studying for 2 days straight with only a few hours of sleep …)

20 pages to go… i better get on that now…

Dream about my longboard ideas :wink: maybe we can come up with something cool :smiley:

night pps!
