Will Self-Balancing Scooters become a mainstream mode of transport?

Will humans ever walk using their own legs again once these self-balancing scooters become a mainstream mode of transport? That is a very good question, as these things are increasing in popularity quickly whilst getting more and more affordable.

With no handle bars, these two-wheeled transportation devices don’t require hands at all unlike the traditional Segway. They have no official name yet, but you can find these generic Chinese devices under names such as ‘Self Balancing Scooter’, ‘Mini Segway’ or ‘Smart Scooter’.

The scooter has a robust build quality and feels very solid with a weight of 27 pounds. The package comes with a user manual, charging cable and the main unit. The device is small enough to put in your backpack to carry it with you where ever you are going, such as the underground of your office.

This smart scooter is able to travel at a speed of 7-8 miles per hour, which is pretty fast considering the average jogging speed is around 4-6 mph. It is able to carry a maximum charge of 220 pounds and has an amazing range of 15 miles. Like with modern smartphones, getting a full charge only takes a couple of hours.

According to people who have tested it such as Ben in the video, learning to ride these things is surprisingly easy: Hit the power button, gently step on the platform one foot at a time and get going. The black rubber pads work like touch-sensitive buttons, turning on the motors when enough pressure is applied. These things certainly make you feel like you’re in the future!

For US consumers there are various models available at different prices on Amazon, but the model in the video is priced at only $283 with US shipping. You can also find them on eBay with shipping from China, but Amazon seems to have them at the best prices even with local shipping.

For UK and EU customers these devices are slightly more expensive, with the same model priced at £236 on Amazon with free UK delivery. They are also available on eBay UK at different prices, but Amazon still beats them price-wise.

Drone Geek Straps 54 Drones Together and Creates a Homemade Helicopter

54-drone-helicopter

If you had lots of free time and money, what would you spend it on? Well, this crazy drone enthusiast decided to strap a bunch of drones into a frame with a seat, resulting in a fully functioning DIY helicopter. It’s not technically a drone though, as the guy is steering the multicopter, but damn… isn’t this thing just pure awesome? -It’s called the Swarm.

This multi-rotor machine uses 54 counter-rotation propellers, weighs 148kg and is able to lift approximately 164kg according to its creator. You won’t be able to fly to another country with this multicopter though, as the maximum flying time is around 10 minutes – slightly less than the standard for radio-controlled drones. However, I’m sure your neighbours would be amazed!

Although radio-controlled drones are available at very low prices nowadays, you might want to think twice before you start strapping hundreds together in an attempt to build your own helicopter in your back yard.  Keep in mind that this guy must be a professional at what he is doing!

One-Man-Helicopter-Composite-FXIf you are loaded with cash and actually want to get your own one man helicopter though, there are some for sale on eBay, such as the Composite FX, selling for US $79,000.

You can probably add
another 20 grand on top for the cost of a training course, but man… Wouldn’t it be great to own one of these!?
