Forget what you know about go-karting. Those fossil fuel guzzlers that kick out choking fumes are so passé because there’s a new kid in town that is going to change the way you look at go-kart – if you can catch glimpse of it. Meet Daymak Blast Go-Kart C5, an electric go-kart that’s so fast that it will make bystanders enviously dizzy. How fast you asked? How does 0-60 in 3.9 seconds sounds? That’s pretty darn fast. No. Wait. It should be count as stupid fast, really. 3.5 seconds is like far quicker than most performance rides you find on the road! Continue reading Meet Daymak Blast Go-Kart C5, The Go-Kart That Makes 0-60 In 1.5 Seconds!
Forget about mobility scooters for grandpa and grandma. Words cannot even explain how cumbersome they are and you know what? With a mobility scooter grandpa or grandma won’t be able to drive a regular car, because that clunky electric vehicle won’t fit in a small car. That’s not very wise if grandpa/grandma only wants it to deal with the last mile, like you know, zipping around the shopping mall and back to the parking lot. From the folks who leverages on Hoverboard (that doesn’t actually hover, btw) to bring you the quirky mobility beach chair, comes HoverBike (again, it won’t hover) that turns your Hoverboard into an electric bike – with four wheels. Continue reading Hoverboard-powered Bike Could Be An Alternative To Mobility Scooter
Billed as the world’s most portable electric scooter, the GoTube Super Portable Electric Scooter by Hong Kong-based East Go does not even look remotely like an electric scooter when folded down. In fact, this 12.8 lbs (5.8 kg) new kid in the electric mobility looks more like a yoga mat when kept inside the included hardshell sling case. Its ridiculous lightweight is afforded by a mostly aluminum construction with a generous use of carbon fiber, and while it may measures a tiny 74.3 x 13.7 cm (29.3 by 5.4 inches) when collapsed, and 74.2 x 41.5 cm (29.3 x 36.5 inches) when deployed, it is totally capable of taking a person of weight up to 150 kg (330 lbs).

In mountainous regions like the Colombia’s Andes Region, folks still uses mule to haul goods not because they choose to, but because the treacherous terrains dictate that only animals are up to the task. While it seems like it will remain so for years to come, Italy-based Colombian designer Edgar Sarmiento (AKA Eddie Mauro, the same person who designed autonomous bus Olli) dream up a modern day mule, a mechanical transport which he calls Arriero Rural Transportation Solution, as an alternative to mules and horses. Continue reading Here’s An Awesome Mobility Solution For Mountainous Region In Colombia
Electric mobility is the in-thing now. These days, anyone can get into electric mobility and the easiest and quickest way is an electric skateboard. But what if you lack of the skill of leaning, or simply too lazy to even to move an inch to make the board steer your way? Well, the good news is, you have the Moboster. The brainchild of a Taiwanese company, Mobster may look like a skateboard and neither is it the hoverboard that does not actually hovers. It is a proper four-wheel electric vehicle that, to move and to maneuver, all you have to do is stand on it and let your fingers do the walking, like literally. Despite its diminutive size, this thing actually has steerable wheels and the supplied Bluetooth remote control is its accelerator, brake, and steering wheel. Continue reading Moboster Is Not A Skateboard, It Is Actually A Foldable Electric Vehicle
Good news, tree-hugging Vespa lovers, or rather, tree-huggers who was denied loving Vespa for the fuel it guzzles and smog it kicks out because Piaggio Group, the company behind the ever-loveable Vespa, has written a new future for this iconic scooter and it is an electric concept called Vespa Elettrica.

Continue reading Vespa Goes Green With Planned Electrified Vespa, Arriving In 2017
By now, electric skateboard is a commonplace and most electric skateboards function as they should, but if you look closer, they are also mostly single-wheel drive which anyone with basic electric know-how can cobble up one. However, the Blink Qu4tro Electric Skateboard you see here is not ‘most of them’ because, as the product name hints, it is ‘quattro’ which means, like Audi’s quattro, it is all-wheel drive. Yes. You heard that right. A four-wheel drive electric skateboard and that’s not something you see or read about everyday. Continue reading Acton Blink Qu4tro Is A 4-wheel Drive Electric Skateboard That Goes 22 Miles
If you count skateboard as your choice of transportation for beating the traffic, then I suppose you won’t want to kick your way and also, discredit longboard as the way to go as it is way to cumbersome – especially when you need to hop onto a crowded train or tram. Well, fret not. Skateboard can still be your best travel buddy, if it is the Leafboard Super Lightweight Electric Skateboard. Leafboard claimed it is as the world’s lightest and most affordable freestyle electric skateboard, but that’s only half true cos’ at 9 lbs and mere 23 inches, Bolt remains as the world’s smallest electric skateboard, albeit only a tad lighter. However, at $329 Kickstarter price, Leafboard is no doubt the most affordable electric skateboard we have seen to date. Continue reading Leafboard Is An Electric Skateboard That’s Both Small And Very Affordable
The rather infamous and much used Hoverboard, as we all know now, does not quite hovers. It is nothing more than a miniature Segway except that it has no handlebar, but surprisingly, it has quite a following and there are even folks who step out and create accessories for it. We have seen how it can be converted to a self-propelled mobile beach chair and a ski-like electric vehicle, now another outfit wants to turn it into a go-kart. California-based HoverPowered is the startup behind the idea of the Hoverboard go-kart called HoverKart which turns a regular Hoverboard into a go-kart, complete with a swiveling third wheel, an adjustable frame, along with handlebars and slidable “race-inspired seat” to accommodate different ages and sizes. Continue reading HoverPowered Wants To Turn Balancing Hoverboard Into A Go-kart
The future of transportation, private and commercial alike, will no doubt be going autonomous. Why? Because we simply can’t trust ourselves to drive, or perhaps, leaving computer to do the job will be comparatively safer than sentient beings behind the wheel? Whatever it is, we do we have a strong feeling that car-rights group will also be a thing of the future. You know, rights group who will insists that humans should be driving, not robots. Anywho, there’s no stopping this autonomous movement. Many countries have already hopped on the autonomous transportation bandwagon. Singapore already did last year and has been trialling self-driving electric buses in locations like Garden by the Bay, commercial zone one-north and Nanyang Technological University, and now, the U.S. will be doing the same too, kicking off with Washington D.C.
