EV startup brand Alpha. has been accused of being “vaporware,” but they’ve managed to convince the US gov’t that their tech is very real.
The company is best known for its computer-generated renderings of EVs, instead of building actual electric cars you can drive. That said, its designs have proven popular enough to generate pre-orders, hype, and seemingly plenty of investors pushing to make the brand’s promised EVs a rolling reality. As such, the announcement that the US Patent Office sees something worth patenting in their proposed “universal” electric skateboard could be seen as a big step towards proving the critics — who have called the brand’s renderings “vaporware” in the past — that they’re for real.
You can check out the official company press release, below, then let us know what you think of Alpha’s future prospects in the comments.
