Skateboards get magnet boost

According to this story, magnetism is about to give skateboarders faster, longer, further rides.

A guy called James Morris has inserted magnets into skateboard trucks. According to the article, "The production prototype has not yet been tested as to its efficiency ratios. The input versus output proportions have not yet been quantified experimentally."

However Mr Morris says, "You get on this thing, and it goes like twice as far for the same push."

Like, hopefully your board won't end up sticking to steel railings when you perform the kind of crazy stunts depicted in this video dude.

As the guy says on his website, magic or magnets?

The jury is still out.
