We've been promised a future of flying cars, jet packs, and rocket skates for all. Well, you can check one off the list – RocketSkates are here!

ACTON, Inc., the leading developer of wearable mobility products, today unveiled its lightweight ACTON R RocketSkates™, the world’s first smart electric skates. Users simply strap in RocketSkates over their shoes and start cruising! As part of the product launch, ACTON will give away the first 25 RocketSkates for $199 on Kickstarter – $300 off the regular retail price. RocketSkates will also be demonstrated live for the first time this week at the Wearable Technologies Conference 2014 in San Francisco, July 8-9.

RocketSkates are designed to be lightweight, and to function without the use of a remote control. ACTON also integrated smart technology so that RocketSkates can connect with an app on users’ smartphones. The app will include features such as route tracking, skate diagnosis, battery status, and games. Users can also interact with other RocketSkates owners. A Software Developer Kit (SDK) will be available for developers interested in creating app features for RocketSkates.

“We've been promised a future of flying cars, jet packs, and rocket skates for all. Well, you can check one off the list – RocketSkates are here!” said Peter Treadway, founder and CTO of ACTON, and creator of RocketSkates.

There are three models available with increasing ranges; the R-6, which runs for 45 minutes; the R-8, which runs for 70 minutes; and the R-10, which runs for 90 minutes. To get Acton’s ‘Rocket Deal’ of $199 a pair, head to Acton’s Kickstarter page at 11:00 a.m. PDT today – but act fast, it is first come, first serve!
