spinKiX Motorised ShoesIn possibly one of the most interesting things at CES, Peter from spnKiX demonstrates their motorised shoes to Jeffrey and John. No, really.

The SpinKix motorised shoes are the result of over 5 years research and development. Two 6″-ish wheels on the inner and outer sides of the shoe are driven by an electric motor powered by batteries will take the rider two to three miles depending on terrain and surface. Top speed is 10 mph and a wireless handheld unit controls the power.

Pre-order now ($649) for delivery in March – the production was funded as a Kickstarter project. There’s a also a video of the spnKiX in early product testing on their website. Totally awesome.
