Some of the most memorable Road Runner cartoons feature Wile E. Coyote strapping rockets onto his roller skates in ill-advised attempts to catching the blindingly fast bird. Things never seemed to work out for Wile E., but they do seem to be looking up for Acton founder Peter Treadway. The first iteration of his electric motorized skates made their debut on KickStarter in 2012. His latest model of Acton Rocket Skates exceeded their funding goal by over $500,000 and set the internet abuzz.

Watch Translogic host Jonathon Buckley do his best to stay upright on a pair of Acton Rocket Skates, and see if he has more success at it than the Looney Tunes bird chaser.
