  • iPad Modded into Functional Skateboard

    Chalk this one up as either an incredibly innovative and cool or unbelievably stupid and immature thing to do with your iPad. Indeed, if there was ever a good application for the obligatory "don't try this at home" warning, it would probably be here. It seems the guys over at Fuel TV have created the world's first iPad skateboard. And based on the video and photographic evidence, it seems those who've always wondered if the iPad could be used for skateboarding purposes now have their answer.

    Fuel TVís "Built to Shred" is out with a segment that showcases pro skater Chad Knight and host Jeff King doing some pretty horrible things to an otherwise innocent little iPad. Turning an iPad into a "functional skateboard" is far from a pretty sight, as the tablet gets pounded and drilled into oblivion in order to become a successfully mounted skateboard base. But if it's the end results that counts, the skateboard modders certainly achieved their objective.

    Fuel TV - "24/7 action sports television" - has certainly angered more than a few Apple fans with their truly non-functional "functional skateboard." Then again, how is this any different from blending the iPad to shreds in an industrial strength commercial blender or putting the iPad in the microwave until it explodes? It seems there's a growing fascination with modding or otherwise destroying the iPad in as many creative ways as possible.

    And, from the looks of it, this latest iPad skateboard stunt is likely just the beginning of modifications to come.

      if the ppl aren't buying the ipad, it still won't motivate those people even if you can use it as a skateboard or something

      Thats right the iPad is such an useless piece of junk that it becomes more functional as a skateboard. And I really mean that.

      So while millions of people outside US are waiting for the opportunity to get an iPad to put into good use, there are morons like those to waste the hard work of hundreds of people to skate with(sort of) or blend it :-/

      I think they deserve to be whipped in public for that!
