From the Boosted board manual. Most of these are no problem for OW
I commute with the onewheel everyday. I can see many places along my route that I'd be picking up a boosted board and walking for at least a few meters. The OW allows me to go door to door uninterrupted. Also its very easy to transition from riding in the street to riding on the sidewalk with pedestrians.
First off let me just state that the Onewheel is the most amazing product I've purchased in the last couple years! However...
Being a programmer myself it scares me how easy it is to connect to and write to the Bluetooth characteristics of the device without any form of pin code/ owner verification. As for now I'll keep my phone connected to the board to prevent it from advertising data so freely (too many nosy programmers in the bay area). The issue can be resolved in 3 (or more) ways:
Have the user hold the power button for a few seconds to enter pairing mode (this would also extend battery life since there would be no need to run the Bluetooth radio when not needed).
Use the last 4 digits of the serial number on the bottom of the board as a pin code (this would also require the board to stop advertising the last portion of the serial as the device name).
Modify the app to only connect to a board when the rssi is high (meaning that the phone is relatively close to the board). This one isn't a total solution because you would still be able to use a Bluetooth scanner to connect but at least it would prevent non-technical people from changing your shaping when they are in range.
Today I went for a nice 16 mile ride! Heres my stats for the outbound direction (map got a little screwed up):
Get yourselves one of these bad boys to recharge about 1.5 times:
Cool Vid Guys! I need to start practicing some advanced moves too
Just get some Vans man. They look great, and come in many different styles. I like to wear the ones without laces for convenience. Vans.com
Vans are not great to walk long distances in because they dont have a very cushiony insole. However it makes them better for board sports because your foot can feel and control the angle of the board easier.
