Geeky skateboarders rejoice! Introducing the $1299 OneWheel, a self-balancing, electric skateboard with a single wheel that can be ridden by leaning in one direction or another.

Dvice reports that “the OneWheel has a range of just 4-6 miles, so unless you’ve got a fairly short commute, it might not be the best way to get to work. That said, the ability to carve across the pavement as if it were snow looks incredibly relaxing – and not too far from stepping onto a real hoverboard. That smooth ride is down to the in-wheel hub motor with only one moving part. Charging the motor can take as little as 20 minutes with the optional ultra charger.”
