Coming through, coming through! If you thought skateboards are passé, we assure you - with the skateboarder's 'wizard staff' they could be making a grand come-back. It's all about speed.

The US-based Rise Robotics created Kickstick, every skateboarder's dream staff that makes the skateboard reach up to 30 mph (48 kph)! Best way to describe it is a motorized oar-like stick with a wheel that makes you look like a gondolier from Venice in 2080.

Who's it for? As the team says, it's for all "enthusiasts, amateurs, inventors, kids, artists, professors, doctors, hackers, engineers, professionals, family, and disruptors alike." Are you one of them?

On Indiegogo there is already a 'coming soon' pre-launch page set up, so head over here if you wish to sign up for updates! Or, you can just follow KickStick on Facebook.
