Chaotic Moons Labs is showing a motorized longboard controlled by a combination of Kinect and a Samsung Windows 8 tablet at CES 2012. Affectionately called the "Board of Awesomeness," the off-road skateboard uses video, voice, gestures, accelerometers, and localization data to ascertain the rider's intentions and accelerate or slow down, as shown in the video. The tablet does all the data processing and is used to turn the board on and off and adjust the top speed which can reach 32mph. It's 2012 and we don't have hover boards, but maybe this will do until they arrive.
