Interesting Gear: JayKay E-trucks

The Germann company JayKay have been developing their innovative electric board trucks (battery and hub-motor in the trucks) and wireless gesture controls for some time. The new wireless controller uses arm gestures, rather than the initial finger movement detection.

I really like the idea, as with the interesting Mellow kit, of fitting the motor parts to your own boards; it would be great to add something like this to my beloved old-style pintails. My main reservation with the JayKay is just the strength of the small battery built into the trucks, but one to watch and see how it matures.
