Drill skateboard Toronto

Someone in Toronto made a drill-powered skateboard

Have you seen anyone riding a drill-powered skateboard around Toronto? It may not be the chicest-looking mode of transportation, but apparently, it gets the job done. And it's a cheaper alternative to the $1,000 (and up) Boosted electric skateboards. Well, at least according to local YouTuber Igor, who runs the channel Inspire to Make.

In his latest DIY video, he teaches viewers how to fashion an electronic skateboard for less than $500. He uses a power drill as his motor and creates a goofy device that actually seems pretty fun to ride.

While it may not be Marty McFly's hoverboard, it's still cooler than these self-balancing scooters.
