With all the release of the brand new 2 wheel self balancing electric scooter, 2015 has become a fun filled year for gadget fans. Across the world, individuals are taking to YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to post photos and videos of themselves zipping around on this 2 wheel contraption which basically appears like a board that has a wheel on either sides.
A mix of a skateboard plus a segway, this mini Segway (without the handle) type thing is bolstering in popularity, fuelled in part by the amount of celebrities that have been seen using one. From Justin Bieber to Soulja Boy, Kendall Jenner to Jamie Foxx, have the ability to tried their hand only at that nifty little gadget, and seem to have stood a large amount of fun doing so.
Nicknamed the 'swegway' (due to it's likeness for the Segway, but a 'cooler' version) we aren't sure entirely where that electric scooter comes from or who invented the very first. More than likely it came from some factory in China. The first glimpses we were treated to of it in the news were a program referred to as IO Hawk, a scooter that costs a whopping $1800. This was back January of 2015. Since that time many cheaper versions the exact same product came out there along with the average price currently is very much around $500.
So how exactly does it work? Basically you climb onto both the panels and shift your whole body weight slightly forward or slightly back and it senses this bodyweight change and moves backwards or forwards. It can also turn right or left. This scooter is becoming very popular is in reality being touted as being the personal mobility device into the future. Who wishes to walk when you are able glide, right? Plus it's really a lot faster than walking, travelling at speeds of 6mph to 10mph.
Where is it possible to get one? They are available on a number of different websites but under different famous brands and at vastly different prices. For instance the IO Hawk mentioned previously is $1800 even though the Phunkeeduck is approximately $1500 and far cheaper would be the Monorover R2 which comes in only $400-$600 (determined by in which you purchase it). What are the differences between each one of these? None whatsoever. The truth is all of them are almost the identical with the exception of several small, barely noticeable differences. It really will depend on your finances and if brand name is very important to you.
