Militarized Skateboard & Scooter with Tank Treads...! (video)

Wow, could this be the future of soldier mobility...?
Designed by Ben Gulak, the DTB Shredder is basically a skateboard/scooter equipped with caterpillar tracks capable of going over 30 MPH and on 40 degree slopes. Not only can it be ridden, it can also be remotely operated to aid soldiers in the field....!  
-Video of it in action below:  

According to the manufacturer, it can handle any kind of terrain and its low center of gravity makes it "ideal for reconnaissance, rescue/recovery, mobile surveillance, and medical evacuation operations".
