“It remains firmly parked until you step on the board, at which point it measures your weight and adjusts for the desired ride mode as defined ahead of time in the app. The calculation happens in a split second before the lights glow steady and a beep is heard signaling the board is ready to ride. Now, with a shift of your weight either toward the front or back of the board, the StarkBoard begins to smoothly move forward or backward, no kicking or remote control required,” according to The Verge.
