Powered with four 100-watt brushless DC hub motors, the RazErblades roller skates were successfully tested by an engineering group from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The wirelessly controlled skates follow the movement of wrist and forearm as you drive them along at design speeds of 10 to 15 miles per hour. Each skate, supplied with two drive wheels and 60 watt-hour (22.2v and 2.6Ah) lithium polymer battery, slides along with minimal drag.

The RazErblades, while promising to take RazEr’s motor technology to a higher level of control and efficiency, allows the user to move, swing and hold objects without any inhibitions whatsoever. Watch the video to see the high-tech skate in action:
