The Dead Hand Journal



The iSlide – brainchild of Ofir Tal of Hadasa College in Israel – is a hydrogen fuel cell powered cross between a skateboard and a snowboard. At least it will be when it completes development later this year (or next...).

iSlide has one wide wheel located in its center of gravity. Lean forward to accelerate; push back to slow down. Tal says nothing about downhill...

iSlide has a top-speed of 15 kilometers per hour, and will be much less expensive than Segway.

Remember when the Segway developed a problem where the bottom stopped, but the top didn't? Well, I'm a bit worried about the iSlide stopping suddenly, with nothing to hold on to...and don't even talk to me about downhill!
