Unless you're a doctor, retired, or the kid of someone who already plays, golf seems like an impossibly boring undertaking. Its only redeeming factor is tooling around a course on a golf cart, or even better, this electric-powered skateboard that's strong enough to carry you and your clubs.
Controlled with a 2.4 GHz wireless remote, the Golf Skate Caddy doesn't actually require you to know how to skateboard. There is some slight leaning required to navigate it around a course, but amateurs should be able to master it in no time. And if standing proves too tricky, the Golf Skate Caddy has a place to sit and (safely) enjoy the ride.
Its built-in battery needs just under four hours to recharge, but that gives you enough juice to navigate roughly 27 holes of golf at a top speed of almost 13 mph. Your mileage will vary based on how much you and your clubs weigh, but the Golf Skate Caddy can apparently handle riders and gear weighing up to 110kg. So for just north of $US4,600 when it's available sometime early next year, the Golf Skate Caddy might finally make golf feel like an exciting X-Games event. [GolfSkateCaddy.com via Gizmag]
