In his beautifully choreographed video, Po-Chich Lai showcases his Star Rover, a skateboard designed for a purely urban environment where stairs are the norm rather than the exception.

The piece aims to expanding the capability and possibility of extreme sports as we understand them. Inherited from our natural instincts, sliding as children and snowboarding as adults, the focus is on one of the most influential and stimulating sports -- skateboading, aiming to push the boundaries further. The piece creates a groundbreaking form of sport which previously never existed and utilises the hidden energy of our cities - stairs. STAIR ROVER -- the Stairboard is a product that relies on the other product - stairs, which are found easily within the human habitat, especially in cities. This is an outstanding performance reflecting where we as residents live and what we love.
