Here is a Backpack That Magically Transforms Into a Skateboard


Backpacks are great. They can be filled to the brim with stuff and, well, rest upon our backs. The only problem with said packs that lay on backs? They tend to lack the ability to magically transforms into tools used in all manner of extreme sport. I dare you to name one single backpack out there that shapes itself into a surfboard, snowboard or even a skateboard (not a crime.) Well, you’d be able to successfully complete that dare were you to have read ahead in this article before reading the first paragraph. Unfortunately, you screwed up. Oh well. Here is a backpack that turns into a skateboard, for you Marty McFlys out there.

Introducing the Movpak, the backpack with a fully retractible skateboard built right in. It’s not even just a skateboard, either. The device can be arranged to be used as a suitcase or something you haul large items on. It’ll even, through the magic of magic, charge your smartphones and similar devices. One last thing. This skateboard is electronic so you don’t have to do any of that dreaded exercise you keep hearing about, as it can cruise up to 15 mph. Thank goodness for that. Sound of body, sound of mind, I always say.

The Movpak is not yet available in stores, so be sure to abstain from camping out in front of your local backpack and skateboard store. You have one of those, don’t you? In any event, the creators have taken to popular crowdfunding site Kickstarter to raise finishing funds. Cowabunga dude. Or whatever. Sigh (Pre-order your own for, um, $1,000. Yikes.)
