The DTV Shredder from BPG Werks is a 125lb all terrain surfboard. Under the hood is a 200CC 4-stroke Honda engine that can propel the skateboard like device up to 30 mph. In their promotional video they show it towing a full sized cab pickup and riding over a wide array of terrains. It can even be controlled remotely removing the danger factor for humans, unless of course you run over a group of unsuspecting tourists. They’re gearing it towards the military, but it looks any crazy nut case could jump on one of these and ride until they break their face.
The Shredder is modular and can be outfitted according to its use. BPG envisions an offensive version complete with gun system designed to hold soldiers and all their equipment, but really anyone can buy one, at least we hope so. Checkout the video after the ‘leap’
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
