Faraday Motion started to develop a 3D printable electric skateboard that can be controlled by your smartphone.
All developed designs will be open source and the team archived a lot in the last few weeks. Together with Ultimaker they changed from their Ultimaker 2 and Ultimaker 2 extended machines to Ultimaker 2+ and Ultimaker 2+ extended. With that jump they improved the production time of large parts from 20 hours down to 8 hours.
You can get the STL Files for the Spine skateboard at Youmagine and pre-order all electronics needed to build your electric skateboard at Faraday Motion´s homepage for 495€. There is also a version with all 3D printed parts for 595€ and a completely assembled version for 695€.
The company will soon start a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to finance their project.
