While iShoes certainly will push you along at a leisurely 15 miles per hour, you might look a little silly wearing them. iShoes are an invention designed by brothers Ilya and Boris Kaganovich from Minnesota, and work a lot like roller skates, except they are motorized and controlled with a hand unit. Weighing eight pounds each, the skates are powered by electric motors that are good for five to seven miles per charge.

Useful for a short range journey, but you might not be getting back. Right now the iShoes are just a prototype, so no pricing or availability — though we do have a video for you after the jump. — Kevin
