CLAIMS

Claim 1 . An apparatus comprising:

a platform;

a plurality of trucks coupled to the platform, wherein the trucks are longitudinally opposing each other; and

a plurality of roller assemblies coupled to the platform, wherein the assemblies are longitudinally opposing each other between the trucks, wherein the assemblies are configured for omnidirectional rotation, wherein the assemblies are elastically biased for longitudinal alignment, wherein at least one of the assemblies comprises a motor.

Claim 2. The apparatus of claim 1 , further comprising:

a foot hook coupled to the platform, wherein the hook is adjustable based on a size of a rider's foot.

Claim 3. The apparatus of claim 2, wherein the hook comprising at least one of an elastic member, a hinge, and a fastener, wherein the hook is adjustable via at least one of the elastic member, the hinge, and the fastener.

Claim 4. The apparatus of claim 1 , further comprising:

a battery powering the motor, wherein the platform comprising the battery; and a photovoltaic cell charging the battery, wherein the platform comprising the cell.

Claim 5. The apparatus of claim 1 , wherein the at least one of the assemblies comprising a roller and a timing band, wherein the band is coupled to the roller and the motor such that the motor drives the roller.

Claim 6. The apparatus of claim 5, wherein the at least one of the assemblies comprising a plurality of mounts, wherein the roller is interposed between at least two of the mounts.

Claim 7. The apparatus of claim 6, wherein the motor is interposed between the at least two of the mounts.

Claim 8. The apparatus of claim 1 , wherein the platform is defined via a first platform segment and a second platform segment, wherein the first segment and the second segment are configured for assembly with each other.

Claim 9. The apparatus of claim 8, wherein the first segment comprising a first circuit portion and the second segment comprising a second circuit portion, wherein the first portion and the second portion form a circuit based on the first segment and the second segment being mated with each other, wherein the circuit facilitates powering of the motor.

Claim 10. The apparatus of claim 9, wherein the first segment comprising a male member, wherein the second segment comprising a female member, wherein the male member at least partially comprising the first portion, wherein the female member at least partially comprising the second portion.
