boosted board turned 'rocketship' flies through times square

through the visor of avid youtuber jordan studdard’s ‘astro helmet’, new york’s times square was seen as a galaxy. the texas-born creative modified his electric skateboard using humble materials, such as cardboard, duct-tape, solo-cups and LED lights, turning an ordinary board into a faux-rocketship. donning an astronaut suit and whizzing past stunned tourists and yellow cabs alike, studdard ignited imagination in passers-by as he casually cruised through times square.

over the years, designboom has seen some unique skateboarding projects: such as the designer who built an electric skateboard for his cat to use; the vancouver shop that created a sandwich board to skate on; and the 3D printed electric skateboard designed to solve public transport woes. see how studdard’s astro-board came together — in his gridded, meticulously-blue-taped-studio-laboratory — here.
