In a strange moment at CES 2016, US Marshalls raided the booth of Changzhou First International Trade Co. a Chinese company making knockoff products of the OneWheel. OneWheel, produced by Future Motion, is a one-wheeled electric skateboard that debuted a year or so ago. Since then, Chinese companies have been creating imposters and ignoring cease and desist letters from Future Motion.
But that might now stop after the US Marshalls seized all the goods from Changzhou on Thursday afternoon.
Thankfully, Bloomberg’s Josh Brustein and camera man were there to film what was going on. Check out video below.
The raid comes at a time when more and more cheaply produced hoverboards are catching fire.
