The easiest way to commute with your backpack. Movpak: The First Portable Electric Vehicle & Backpack In One
The Movpak features a nifty fold-up and fold-down function that can be performed with one hand. It lets the board get sucked up into a chamber in the backpack so it can be worn like a regular pack or pulled along like rolling luggage. The skateboard tops out at a respectable 15 mph. It has a range of 9 miles and takes two hours to fully charge up. That means you could ride it to school or work, top off the battery, and ride home in style with no problem.
This newest model is also literally crammed with additional functionality, including Bluetooth (for security and for playing music and calling), an integrated phone charger to recharge your devices anywhere, inbuilt speakers, a holder for your helmet, and even a mic for conference calling. Though it’s unsurprisingly almost certainly heavier than your existing backpack at a substantial 17 pounds, which may start feeling a little heavy on your shoulders if you need to do a lot of walking, but that’s when you could just use it as a rolling bag instead.
The backpack on the back of the board helps to provide a measure of stability for riders who may not be used to skateboarding. The gadget is controlled with a remote that lets you speed up or stop.
