What is it? Remember those kids’ shoes with wheels in the heels? RocketSkates are like those on steroids. These motor-powered boots fit over your shoes and zip you along at 12mph. Never mind walking, this is how we want to get to work. When’s it due? Strap a pair on now! Why are we excited? So it’s a bit childish, but what’s wrong with having a little fun? RocketSkates come with an app that lets you track metrics like your speed and distance travelled, and even enables you to control the skates remotely – perfect for the mischievous pranksters out there.
