It\u2019s happened to all of us: We\u2019re out and about, rolling down the road, and our phone dies. It\u2019s annoying, it\u2019s commonplace, and solutions are few. Unless you happen to be using the Chargeboard. If you're new to boarding, check out the best skateboard for beginners to find your first set of wheels.\r\nRolling, Rolling, Rolling\r\nThe Chargeboard is, on the surface, a fairly straightforward longboard. It\u2019s built to cruise for long distances, as you may have guessed, and is mostly a skateboard you use for transportation purposes. The real value in it, of course, is not to do with the skateboard, as attractive as it is. No, the best part of it is what\u2019s underneath the skateboard, and how it uses the power you generate as you cruise. Speaking of cruising, the Elos skateboard is a compact urban cruiser, perfect for commuting.\r\nElectric Boarding\r\nThe Chargeboard powers itself, or charges your phone, by gathering energy as the board rolls. A dynamo is built into the back wheel, so as you push the board, you generate power. Being on it for an hour charges a battery enough that it can recharge your phone several times, but that\u2019s not all the Chargeboard offers. It\u2019s also been built to serve as a dock, so when you\u2019ve arrived at your destination, you can flip over your board, plug in your phone, and start listening to some music. It\u2019s a green way to dock and charge your phone.\r\nCharged Up\r\n\r\n\r\nThe Chargeboard is currently just a prototype inching towards reality; in fact, its creator is curious to see whether electronics or skateboard companies would be interested in picking up his idea. But he seems dedicated to bringing it to the masses either way, and is currently looking into design and manufacturing ideas. Regardless, we\u2019ll be curious to see what he pulls off and how the Chargeboard changes as it comes to market. As more clever ideas like this are integrated into our lives, the more energy we\u2019ll collect and, more importantly, save.
