Rover Electric Scooter by Works Electric

these days people like us are just plain lazy. instead of walking to the convenience store that’s just three blocks away, we chose to hop on into our gas-guzzlers. however, if there is the Rover Electric Scooter, then that would be a different story altogether. its somewhat chunky but lightweight aluminum construction hides away a three-phase brushless DC motor and lithium-ion battery pack that affords a guilt-free, eco-friendly commute for up to 36 miles per charge with a breezy top speed of up to 33 mph. hand built in Portland, Oregon, the Rover Electric Scooter also features battery regenerating brakes, a smartphone holder with USB charger, LED headlights and taillights, a set of chubby tires, and a cute little parking kickstand.

The Self-Balancing Electric Unicycle

apart from flying cars, traveling on a single-wheel contraption is probably the next most dream about transportation, albeit being way less ambitious. while flying cars may take quite a while to fruition, electric single-wheeler is not a dream anymore – if you have that kind of money to throw. and the money we are talking about is something like $2,700. The Self-Balancing Electric Unicycle aka EcoBoomer iGO is one such unicycle you can buy today. powered by a 500-watt electric motor that’s capable of ferrying a person weighing 250 pounds (115 kilograms) or less, it affords the rider up to two hours (or a range of 19 miles) of 13 mph (21 km/h) thrill and takes up to three hours to fully recharge its built-in lithium-ion battery. 13 mph may sounds like child’s play, but with just one wheel, we wouldn’t want to go any faster.

Wheelman Motorized Skateboard

Penny Skateboards

long before people start zooming downhill with huge, surfboard-like skateboards, there were those little plastic boards that let us whizzed around our neighborhood and at times, landed us in some wild and exhilarating chases by dogs (note: not the other way round). like all awesome things we love (Vespa, Mini – just to name a few), these lovable, kick-powered rides are making a come back in the form of the Penny Skateboards that have a little more of awesomeness in them. available in the original 22-inch as well as the nickel 27″ forms Continue reading Penny Skateboards

if you think skateboarding is not fast enough to thrill you or kicking the ground to get the skateboard moving is a complete chore, then perhaps throwing in a motor or two into it might be a good idea. we know, we know, electric-powered skateboards are not new but up till now, they are mostly cumbersome and heavy, and certainly not something that you could lug around like a traditional skateboard. the Boosted Boards is the middle path solution – it stands between having no motor at all and those with hefty motor (or motors) strapped to them.

not content with just virtual mech machines in a game of MechWarrior? i knew you wouldn’t cos’ we aren’t too. since the beginning of time, many dudes who grew up watching Japanese animations such as Robotech or played MechWarrior have dreamt of piloting robots or Mechs (it just a more high-tech way of saying pilot-able robot), as they are more commonly known as – a dream which may seems a little far fetched, until now or so it seem. though we have to qualify that we detect a whiff of fish here but the idea by Japanese firm, Suidobashi Continue reading KURATAS
