    CNET and many other online sources are all running this fun story and video today about Jeff King, the host of Fuel TV’s “Built to Shred” show, taking a 64GB iPad and turning it into a skateboard. After constructing his iPad board, King asked pro skateboarder Chad Knight to try and ride it down a half pipe and generally put it through its paces.

    Knight starts off by fixing wheels to the iPad, before riding it, but, surprise, surprise, it would appear that the iPad’s glass screen is not actually strong enough to resist a person standing on it (who would have thought!), and so it cracked! After a few tweaks, however, Knight took his iPad board for another spin, and was actually able to skate around the half-pipe without having anything major go wrong, although he was sensible enough not to try any tricks.

    Check out the video, it’s a lot of fun! But don’t try this at home folks!
