Why walk to work — or even bike — when you can get there with smart electric skates? ACTON recently launched a Kickstarter for RocketSkates, the world’s first smart electric skates. Each skate has two hub motors controlled by an on-board microprocessor, and the skates are able to communicate with one another so they maintain the same speed and behavior. The skates also communicate with a companion smartphone app, which includes features like route tracking, skate diagnosis, battery status and more. Best of all, the skates have no need for a remote control; they’re powered by lithium ion battery packs, meaning you get a completely hands-free experience. When the RocketSkates launch later this year, they’ll be available in three models – featuring battery life up to 90 minutes. The smart skates blew by their $50,000 Kickstarter goal on their second day. To learn more about RocketSkates — or to make sure you get a pair when they ship in October — head over to their Kickstarter page today.

This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
