The Sidewinding Circular Skates consist of a pair of 10-inch rubber wheels with foot platforms.
Apart from riding with a sideways stance, the gadget appears to be a futuristic take on roller skates.
Rather than pushing off the ground like a traditional skateboard or skates, the user gains momentum from a Segway-like propulsion by leaning side to side. Braking is achieved by touching one's toes to the ground.
An extendable rod can be attached to offer the rider training wheels of sort.

The Sidewinding Circular Skates' design gives skaters as much mobility as the expert skateboarder. Independent wheels allow the skater to coast in a weaving motion and spin 720 degrees.
