From the video description:

We like to have fun at our school. So, after several school closings due to snow and cold, we recorded this call to parents to see if we could make them laugh. I think we succeeded. Boone County Schools in Kentucky is one of the nation's finest. And, our awesome parents deserve this chuckle. By the way, if this video can gain us some exposure, AND you know of someone willing to help us out with some cash for technology, we DESPERATELY need it. Ellen? Rosie? Oprah? Jimmy Kimmel? We love our jobs - I hope you can tell!

Traditional skateboards are so old news. The OneWheel electric skateboard rolls ahead with the idea that you don't need four wheels or a good sense of balance to ride.

The Onewheel board has batteries under one foot and control electronics under the other. The control electronics have motion sensors — like what you would find in your iPhone — which run a control loop which tells the motor how to run and balance. The whole thing is powered by a powerful hub motor, which is about a 2,000-watt peak motor or 500 watts of continuous power. It's all mounted on the type of wheel that would usually be used by a go kart.

Their Kickstarter had a $100,000 goal, but has surpassed that amount and ended with $630,862 pledged.
