With the launch of the new 2 wheel self balancing electric scooter, 2015 may be a thrilling year for gadget fans. Worldwide, people are taking to YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to share photos and videos of themselves zipping around for this 2 wheel contraption which basically looks like a board that has a wheel on either sides.
A mixture of a skateboard and a segway, this mini Segway (with no handle) type thing is bolstering in popularity, fuelled in part by the number of celebrities which are seen during one. From Usher to Soulja Boy, Kendall Jenner to Jamie Foxx, all have tried their hand with this nifty little gadget, and seem to own were built with a great deal of fun accomplishing this.
Nicknamed the ‘swegway’ (on account of it’s likeness to the Segway, but a ‘cooler’ version) we aren’t sure entirely where this type of electric scooter originated in or who invented the very first. Almost certainly it originated from some factory in China. The initial glimpses we saw than it in media were something named the IO Hawk, a scooter that will set you back a stunning $1800. This was back January of 2015. Ever since then many cheaper versions of the product came in the marketplace plus the average price presently appears to be around $500.
What makes it work? Basically you climb onto the two panels and shift the body weight slightly forward or slightly back and it senses this bodyweight change and moves backwards or forwards. It may also turn left or right. This scooter is becoming very popular it really is being touted since the personal mobility device of the future. Who would like to walk when you can glide, right? Plus it’s actually a lot faster than walking, travelling at speeds of 6mph to 10mph.
Where are you able to purchase one? These are typically located on many different websites but under different brandnames and also at vastly different prices. As an example the IO Hawk mentioned above is $1800 even though the Phunkeeduck is concerning $1500 and much cheaper would be the Monorover R2 which will come in just $400-$600 (determined by that you get it). What’s the difference between all of these? None at all. In fact they are all almost the identical excluding several small, barely noticeable differences. It simply is dependent upon your allowance and regardless of whether name is significant for you.
