Longboard Made Awesome With Windows 8 Tablet & Kinect

Patrolling the show floor of CES can be a bit of a grind. You go from booth to booth in search of the next cool thing – but we were surprised when the next cool thing rolled by us.

From the creative minds at mobile applications developer Chaotic Moon comes this modified longboard that's kitted out with a Kinect, a Windows 8 preview build tablet, GoPro cameras, and more.
