A company has produced the world's first 'pedal' board - a revolutionary paddle board with handlebars.<br />
<br />
The quirky invention, named the Hobie Mirage Eclipse, looks like the cross between a paddle board and a scooter and can be steered using its handlebars.<br />
<br />
You don't need a paddle to move about - instead you gather momentum by walking on two large hinged treads which work a bit like a stepping machine at a gym and are connected to two fins underneath the board.<br />
<br />
To steer the board, you pull the left brake lever, which is attached to the handlebars, to turn left, and the right lever to turn right.
