Bluetooth enabled skateboard coming soon

The Groundsurf is a three-wheel motorised skateboard with a unique selling point - it's Bluetooth-enabled, and as such, can be controlled via mobile phones.

Ratleads, the Parisian company that created the Groundsurf, says that the downloadable software will initially be available for HTC phones.

The wireless controls will enable a user to increase or decrease their speeds by sliding their finger up or down the screen of their smartphone.

An initial release of the Groundsurf is promised soon, for the retail price of $1770 to $2040.
