Electric Skateboard with Weight Difference Sensing

Detail view of Electric Skateboard motor and wheels

Electric skateboards are not uncommon, and hand based throttle systems make up the majority of eboards on the market. While some eboards have an acceleration switch on the board that is activated by stepping on it, the weight-difference-sensing eboard design featured here offers advantages over the typical foot-actuated design.
