Earlier this week Faraday Motion has revealed that we can finally pre-order their new 3D printed electric skateboard. There are various versions available, to accommodate both – your requirements and your budget.
Designed to develop speed of 25-30 km/h, it also offers a range of up to 10 kilometers on a single charge. When it is flat, it can recharge the battery within an hour. It can also be 3D printed! The time required for printing is about 100+ hours, and it also requires a minimum 3D printer bed size of 200 x 200 mm. When you assemble the electronic skateboard, you can control it via an application from your smartphone.
You can choose from two possible versions – self-assembled and redy-to-go versions. You can get the first version at mere $495.
And another great news Faraday Motion has teamed up with Ultimaker in order to make the design available on Youmagine. They are working on developing a model that’ll be able to reach 40 km/h. It already has a name – HyperBoard, and apparently will require over 500 hours of printing time and about 1-2 weeks to assemble.
