So what are Rocketskates? Hear from Acton in their own words:

They are electric, motorized skates. Simply strap the RocketSkates™ over your shoes and off you go!

Remote controllers? We don't need remote controls! Your hands are now free for interpretive dance moves as you cruise about town- your feet control the skates. Each skate has two hub motors controlled by an on-board microprocessor, and are powered by a lithium-ion battery pack. The skates communicate with each other so they maintain the same speed and behavior. RocketSkates™ connect to smartphone via the ACTON App. You can monitor your skates and their performance. Route tracking, skate diagnosis, battery status, games, and social interactivity; the app keeps you in touch with other RocketSkaters.
