Introducing Halo Board, The Self Learning Electric Skateboard Due for May 26 Release
A Los Angeles-based tech company is launching a self-learning electric skateboard called the Halo Board.
To move forward, simply lean in that direction; to move back, just lean back. To turn left or right the rider needs simply to press down using their toes or heels and the innovative sensors will do the rest.
The learning curve for most electric skateboards is a pretty basic one; just practice riding the board and get used to it. However, the Halo Board flips this on its head. Instead, the Halo Board is a smart piece of technology which learns from you, adjusting the experience it provides in response to your riding behavior.
This emphasis on fun is represented in the board's integration with wireless Bluetooth technology, enabling pairing with mobile devices so that you can play your favorite music while you ride. As well as developing the fundamental technology of the board, the Halo Board team has been working away creating their Dual Halo Speakers which provide a level of audio quality befitting of such an innovative piece of kit.

Those who got their hands on pre-orders of the Halo Board have been suitably impressed with the firm's board. "We've had it for three weeks now," says tester Mark Richardson, "and I recommend this one wheel skateboard, trust me, you will not regret it."
J Brooks, testing the Extreme model, had similarly high praise for the product. "This Halo board is absolutely amazing," he said.
The board will receive a general release on May 26, and will start at $997.00.
