What is it? Some peo­ple dream of riches. Oth­ers dream of world peace. Oth­ers still dream of pow­er­ing a skate­board us­ing a cord­less drill. That was the dream of Tony Ward, in­ven­tor of the Kranx Pow­er­stik – and now he wants to make it a re­al­ity. When’s it due? Septem­ber 2015. Why are we ex­cited? The Pow­er­stik is to skate­boards what the ham­ster is to the MacFor­mat of­fice com­put­ers: a source of power. It’s the kind of in­sane in­ven­tion that we all love, where some­one has clearly taken their two favourite things and cheer­fully mashed them to­gether. It’s a labour of me­chan­i­cal, drill-based love, and we can’t imag­ine where it might lead.
