Inventor: Stephen Augustin, BMW Design Team
O.K., so maybe it's just a souped-up skateboard, but the elegant blue-and-black StreetCarver boasts a high-tech suspension system, inspired by BMW's 5 Series sedans, that lets riders tilt their boards sharply into curves without losing their center of balance. The 30-in. fiber-glass-and-plywood deck helps absorb shock, while extra-large wheels, mounted on flexible aluminum axles, provide added stability. Air bags not included.
