An off-road machine from Boston, the tread skateboard was tearing it up around World Maker Faire New York yesterday. Part snowblower, part battery, this deck can hit 20mph. It was designed, built, and ridden by Charles Guan, a member of The Miters from MIT.

    Hi Matt,

    I’m the builder. Might be helpful to include the vehicle’s website: http://www.etotheipiplusone.net/?page_id=1216 as it contains more specifications and links to the build report (and tons of pictures of the design and build process).
