This backpack turns into an electric skateboard (video)Need a lift? The $700 Movpak carries you -- and your stuff -- up to 20 mph.
[MUSIC] When you're heading home from work, full backpack of stuff to take with you, you will need to get to the train fast. Well, your backpack's a Movpak It can become an electric skateboard on command. [MUSIC] It's got all other kinds of gadgets in there too, like a wireless charging for your phone, a USB port, GPS, regenerative braking, all kinds of things you don't need. So basically you plant your leg up against this firm rear panel in the backpack and it keeps you in fairly good shape as your rocketing down the street. Mind you its a little hard to turn in this thing, and I ended up tripping over myself a few times. But at least when you fall off its just a few steps to safety. Going to get to the train, you just flip it around, pack it up, and you're on your way. Move pack, it'll be out later this year, on IndieGoGo May tenth. [MUSIC]
