V8 Skateboard

Thanks to Peter Risdon, news of a V8-powered skateboard.

It had to be in Australia. "We haven't built any safety features into it at all, really - apart from a big red button and the ability to run away from it, that's about it."

Dear Santa, I've been really good this year.


  1. Bah, still travels along the ground (well, unless you hit a bump). Where are the hoverboards Marty McFly and Doc Brown promised us?

  2. I'm sure our Antipodean friends are working on it.

  3. Outstanding!

    Even if they did exaggerate slightly on the lack of safety features - there's clearly a bloke with a fire extinguisher as well as the red button!

  4. It's the Nanny State gorn mad, I tell yer.

  5. Nah, rather go for a V2 rocket. Strap myself to the top and kiss the world goodbye.
