MIT CSAIL — Self-learning robotic skateboard

sk8mate detects how badly you wobble, and adjusts the length of the skateboard that best suits your skill level: beginner, medium, advanced.

It’s generally easier to balance and maneauver with a longer board. More advanced skaters can skate on smaller boards with comfort ease.

As you improve, sk8mate will challenge you to skate at a harder level when the time is right.

This project explores an exploration and application of physical adaptive tools — tools that adapt to a users’ skill level to them learn a motor skill.
