The Mad Max Electric Skateboard

All I could think of was this original TV ad for the first, original, Mad Max movie:

Mad Max Trailer 1979

When I saw that car peel out with “Interceptor” painted on the back, I went WHOAAAA! back then.

I had the same reaction today seeing the Enertion Raptor 2 electric skateboard in the video after the break.

Amazon Wish List For Hurricane Maria Relief In Puerto Rico

Note: This post will be a Sticky until I think it’s stopped doing some good. Scroll down one for new posts. But read this first and help!

Astrid Cruz — aka artistikem on Twitter — is a writer in Puerto Rico. Remember Hurricane Maria ravaged it?

As if that wasn’t bad enough, there’s been round after round of drenching rain since. See this Instagram video from Astrid.

Most of the island is still without electricity and, according to a TV news report I just saw while doing this post, eighty percent of people have no access to clean running water.

Assistance still isn’t getting where it’s needed. And Astrid needs help ASAP.

The In-Progress Eon eSkateboard Kit

I was browsing Indiegogo — I installed the Android app on the borrowed Asus craptab — and came across a completed campaign for this: Eon: World’s 1st Electric Skateboard Powertrain

iFive Mini 4G To Go Indiegogo

I was shocked to get a reply to my email to Five Technology about the release of the iFive Mini 4G tablet.

It said:

Hello, FNF ifive Mini 4G in this week’s congregation raised, you can log in to this website to support this project.

Immediately after seeing that, I went to Indiegogo.

I had no luck searching with these terms: “Five,” “FNF,” “iFive,” and “tablet” (without quotes). It probably has yet to be listed?

There’s no way I can see to sort campaigns by date, so I’m not sure how to go about finding it other than the site’s search option.

If a reader finds the listing, please leave a Comment with it.

Same-day update: Five Technology is now using Twitter again. When they finally list at Indiegogo, they will probably post the link there before I get word of it.

The first is from a store at 21st Street and Broadway in NYC, called Flying Tiger. It purports to sell merchandise from Denmark. Too much of it is actually made in China.
