Like skateboards, roller skates are also becoming motorized to facilitate the lives of riders. After Big Daddy, and other Scarpar Skataz the concept SpnKIX added to the list.

SpnKIX is a pair of motorized skates designed by the American designer Peter Treadway. The California skates designed with wheels and a rechargeable electric battery. The SpnKIX are doing keeping the shoes on. According to the designer, shoes are part of motorized transport than men, especially young people, have always wanted as well as the flying car and jet packs. SpnKIX comes with a remote that controls both skates together. This accessory is equipped with a strap that attaches to the arm of the user. The pads are made of reinforced nylon fiber and aluminum. Their maximum speed is 16 km / h for a range of about 4 km. The battery charges in two hours.

Fund raising has already begun for this project. The designer expects a market in the first quarter 2012.
