Poll any self respecting parent and they’ll probably tell you that the last thing they want their kid playing with is a skateboard or scooter – pretty much anything that insures a fractured skull is guaranteed to boil the blood pressure.

But if we can table those fears for a minute and consider just how much cooler the Springboard Scooter is over those regular old Razor Scooters. ┬áBuilt-in to the footboard is a “truck spring”, a suspension system that provides extra lift for kick-offs and “bunny hops,” while still providing the necessary stability for traditional moves like grinding a rail. ┬áThere is of course the obligatory rear wheel brake and adjustable height handlebar.

Hammacher has it for $59.95.

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."
