An electric skateboard or a personal transporter is based on a simple skate board. The speed of this device is controlled by a hand held throttle or weight sensor controls and the direction of its travel is adjusted by moving the board from one side to another. An electric skateboard is manufactured using batteries, motors and a remote control and of course a simple mechanical skate board. These skate boards are readily available in the market.
