Zboard, combines skateboard and 3D printing

After an incredible fundraising on Kickstarter, the Zboard project is finally available. The creators of this electric skateboard needed $10k to complete their project, the community credited them with $279k. Now available for $649, the designers look back at the evolution of the project, and the crucial role that 3D printing has played in it. The Zboard was born from a desire to move around by skateboard very simply and without the need to push every 5 metres. To do this, the team created a device based on weight sensors to regulate speed. This is where the Makerbot Replicator 2 comes in, the team says it saved them at least 6 months of development and no less than $20k in molds.
