STAIR ROVER from Po-Chih Lai on Vimeo.


According to the designer of this cool skateboard Po-Chih Lai he says;


The piece aims to expanding the capability and possibility of extreme sports as we understand them. Inherited from our natural instincts, sliding as children and snowboarding as adults, the focus is on one of the most influential and stimulating sports – skateboarding, aiming to push the boundaries further. The piece creates a groundbreaking form of sport, which previously never existed and utilises the hidden energy of our cities – stairs. STAIR ROVER – the Stairboard is a product that relies on the other product – stairs, which are found easily within the human habitat, especially in cities. This is an outstanding performance reflecting where we as residents live and what we love.



There are prices for this great piece of engineering, but it cannot be long before it goes on sale.
