Neo skateboard lets you gun its electric motor

Where most of you are concerned, I am sure that the phrase "gun control" means one thing. Well, in skateboard land, it's about to mean another. The Xero e-board Neo has a top speed of 14 mph (and can get there in around four seconds — ooh, gnarly) and can roll for around 13.5 miles on a full charge, which takes between three and four hours. But the best bit has got to be the remote-control unit. Yep. Is that a pistol on your skateboard, or are you just pleased to see me?

The Neo is now on sale for £220 — that's around $360 — just in time for Christmas. Just one question: at what does one point the gun-shaped remote control to go faster? Not at passers by, I assume.
