    This is a ceiling fan somebody removed the blades from, then drilled three skateboard decks to use as replacements. I'm not sure if they used some sort of industrial ceiling fan, but I thought manufacturers generally tried to make fan blades as light as possible. Skateboard d... / Continue →

    This is an entirely too artistic video (just show the stair parts, dammit!) demonstrating Po-Chih Lai's Stair Rover, an 8-wheeled skateboard with pivoting trucks that allow it to be ridden down stairs. Me? I like to ride down stairs the old fashioned way: on a pillow like I d... / Continue →

    This is the Rockboard Decender, a $120 skateboard deck with tank treads instead of wheels that can only be ridden down hills (unlike THIS badass mother). Don't have any hills around your house? GET THE F*** OUT OF THE MIDWEST. Trust me, you'll thank me for it later. Ooooooo... / Continue →

    This is of the guys from Chaotic Moon Labs (pfft -- your chaotic moon has nothing on the one in Majora's Mask!) demonstrating their mind-controlled skateboard. Basically you put on the neurosensor headset, stand on the board, then think of a distant point. The board will go f... / Continue →

    This is quite possibly the coolest thing I've ever seen in my life. And I'm not just saying that because I've yet to see a naked lady, but one time I was standing at the just the right spot when the door to the women's locker room opened and I saw this mammoth with massive dro... / Continue →

    The Tracked Skateboard is the 125-lb lovechild of a tank and skateboard that shared a special night together while a Segway secretly filmed from the closet (hence the handlebars). You know, or it could have been made by BPG-WERKS for military applications if you're unimaginati... / Continue →

    This a short little skateboarding/snowboarding video called 'Gnarcade' that features a bunch of video game environments and characters. It was created by Knifeshow Inc. and has a little something for everyone: Space Invaders, Bubble Bobble, Pac-Man, Frogger and -- wait for it ... / Continue →

    Jeff King and Chad Knight went and turned an iPad into a skateboard. But will it shred? You're gonna have to watch to find out! Or just keep reading. No, no it will not. Hit the jump for the video.... / Continue →

    This is a video of the world's largest skateboard. How big is the world's largest skateboard? Bigger than a breadbox, smaller than the planet. That should give you a pretty good idea. Did I ever tell you I broke my arm trying to ollie over the recycling bin in my driveway? ... / Continue →

    You know the new Tony Hawk: Ride game that comes with a skateboard peripheral? This is a dog playing it -- and he's pretty good (except the 360 was obviously FAAAAKE). Which brings up an interesting question -- what is it with bulldogs and skateboarding? They love that shit ... / Continue →

    Artist Tobias Leingruber (another nevernude) had a dream. Unfortunately he couldn't remember it when he woke up so he glued a keyboard to a skateboard. The end. I am not really sure if one can actually balance on this and I am not aware if this piece of artwork has hidden ... / Continue →

    This is a video of 36 skateboarders playing a game of human Tetris on some hill in San Francisco while wearing giant neon shapes on their heads. Except it's not actually Tetris because not all of them are rocking tetrominoes. No, some of those mothers got damn pentominos on t... / Continue →

    I'm pretty sure this is every five-year old boy's first invention. Of course, few have the technical know-how to make it happen. And even fewer are allowed to play with power tools. But grownup Ray Bavetta kept the dream alive and slapped a 3.7HP model airplane engine on a ... / Continue →

    Eric Scott sped across the 1,500-foot-wide Royal Gorge in southern Colorado at a speed of 75 mph. With a jetpack. It took him 21 seconds and the bastard didn't even have a parachute because he's a stupid idiot. Also, this feat isn't very impressive. Anybody can jetpack over... / Continue →

    Orbit Wheels are wheels that you put your feet through and then skate around sideways. They cost a not-too-bad $145 and mine just arrived. I'm going to take them for a spin and I'll give you the report when I'm back. UPDATE: They were surprisingly fun. Unfortunately they we... / Continue →

    Wow. Baltimore police officer Salvatore Rivieri goes off the deep end on a 14-year old skateboarding in a place he's not supposed to. It's pretty crazy. And by crazy I mean it looks like officer Rivieri may be roid raging. It was all caught on video via cellphone by one of ... / Continue →
