For the latest in my Pet Projects experiments, I built an electric skateboard for my cat to ride. Put a treat into the throttle lever, and she pulls it to get a snack and a boost!
I'm a newbie to building skateboards, and want to thank commenters who have pointed that the longboard trucks are mounted backwards! So if you do try to build (you or your cat) a board with longboard trucks - don't make the same mistake I did, and do some research first :)
