DesignReasons sells the SpinKix by Peter Treadway

SpnKiX are battery powered, motorized skates that strap right on to your shoes. They are hand controlled by a wireless remote. All hardware and electronics are integrated into a frame made of fiber reinforced nylon. One motor and battery pack per foot.

How do spnKiX work?
A wireless remote controls both feet at once. The remote straps to your hand and you can vary the throttle with the continuously variable speed control. They come with removable training wheels so anyone can master them easily. After you get some training sessions in, take them off and glide like a pro!
