There are micro scooter, AKA skatescooter, and then there is this “Jet Powered” micro scooter whipped up by plumber-turn-mad garage inventor Colin Furze. The Jet Powered Micro Scooter is sure to put a smile on the face of any kid who is brave enough to step onboard and it certainly put a smile on Furze’s little one.
