We just caught up with Peter Treadway, the creator of SpnKiX motorized skate shoes, at his booth at CES — he was gracious enough to strap them on and wheel himself around for us.

We just caught up with Peter Treadway, the creator of SpnKiX motorized skate shoes, at his booth at CES — he was gracious enough to strap them on and wheel himself around for us. SpnKiX is sort of like those rollerskates that strap over your shoes, except way more high tech: the skates are controlled by a handheld remote and can propel riders along at up to 10 miles per hour. There's no final price or release date yet, but we'll let you know when they surface.
