The Aerolongboard is a new concept of Electric Longboard because it combines a very light board, with two powerful BLDCs motors powered by a 6S3P battery pack of 18650 of the best quality. The longboard works with DIY Electronics made to also be able to control the Longboard with Force Sensitive Resistors but because I knew that it would not be easy to configure this kind of system because it would vary a lot depending of the weight of the person, I also gave to the longboard the option to be controlled with a an App made with Blynk which can be download from the app store and google playstore.
I decided to use Creative Commons because I think that when I learn, it is fair to give back at least a bit of knowledge.
I will continue with the development of an ESC, and also post it as open-source. After that, I would like to develop my brand and start to sell a completely DIY Longboard with some copyright or patent (depending of the patents pending that I am probably using without really knowing).
Creative Commons (CC) is an internationally active non-profit organisation that provides free licences for creators to use when making their work available to the public. These licences help the creator to give permission for others to use the work in advance under certain conditions.
CC licences allow the creator of the work to select how they want others to use the work. When a creator releases their work under a CC licence, members of the public know what they can and can’t do with the work. This means that they only need to seek the creator’s permission when they want to use the work in a way not permitted by the licence.
The great thing is that all CC licences allow works to be used for educational purposes. As a result, teachers and students can freely copy, share and sometimes modify and remix a CC work without having seeking the permission of the creator.
As I mentioned before, for the moment, this project has been made to learn, and earn something even more important than money, the know-how. Once I will feel that I am ready to comercialize the Longboard, I would like to sell the Longboard on kickstarter to finance the mass production. My aim market will not really be Peru, I think that the aim is the united states and europe because here in Peru there is more a culture of products where you can sit. There is only a very small market of people that would like to pay between 800$ and 1200$ for an electric longboard.
