Tech makes everything better!

BY DAN NESSEL

H

ow do you take chess, pen and paper, a
skateboard and a tape measure and make
them hip and cool? By adding some new
technology of course! Let's take a look...

Neon Nitro 8 Self Balancing
Electric Board

As we move into Spring, we face that never-ending
challenge - how to get the grandkids away from their
screens and playing outside? The Neon Nitro 8 Self
Balancing Electric Board will not only get the kids
outside, it will have them begging to stay outside
long after the sun has set. This self-balancing, onewheel electric skateboard can go up to 8 MPH and
the neon lights make riding at night a super fun
experience.

Blackboard by Boogie Board

Remember pen, paper, sketching, doodling and all
that fun stuff from our childhood? It doesn't feel
like the grandkids have the same appreciation
for putting pen to paper and just creating...but
that might all change. The Blackboard by Boogie
Board uses new Liquid Crystal Paper technology
to make pen and paper hip and fun again. Write,
trace, doodle and erase, just like with real paper
and pen, but without harming a tree. One
button cell battery powers the Blackboard for
five years, so it's like having an endless pad of
paper for drawing and fun!

Laser Chess by Thinkfun

Having some trouble getting the grandkids
interested in classic strategy games like chess?
You will be amazed at how the excitement level
jumps when you add a few lasers to the board!
Laser Chess by Thinkfun combines the spatial
thinking skills of chess with the high-tech fun
of laser beams. This is a two player, turn based
strategy game much like chess, but to take your
opponents king you will need to hit him with a
laser beam.
