Underwater Handheld Scooter: Swim Underwater Even If You Don’t Know How

Underwater Handheld Scooter

 

If you never got the hang of swimming but love being in the water anyway, then you might want to get one of these Sea Doo sea scooters. They’re basically hand-held gizmos that look like a cross between a vacuum cleaner and a fan. Power it up and it will propel you underwater so you can “swim” even without actually swimming.

The Sea Doo scooter can propels you up to 2 miles per hour at a maximum depth of 15.5 feet. It comes with a rechargeable battery that can run up to an hour and a half per charge, which is more than enough time for some leisurely swimming.

It’s available online for about $185.

Pibal Bicycle

If you feel like cycling but have a scooter and feel like scooting but have a bike, then you should check out the Pibal. It’s a bicycle-scooter hybrid that lets you do either in one neat commuting machine. The Pibal is a product of a collaboration between French designer Philippe Starck and Peugeot, who created it for a free cycle scheme in France.

Scooter Snuggies: Ride in Style and in Comfort

Scooter Snuggies

It’s hard to travel by scooter during winter because of the elements. You could brave the chilly winds by bundling up in sweaters and coats, but that won’t help any when you’re maneuvering tight corners. Electric bikes and scooters are especially popular in China, so you can count on the enterprising Chinese to come up with a solution of sorts: the Scooter Snuggie.

It’s a snowsuit hybrid of sorts that’s designed to cover the chest and leg area of the rider, effectively protecting them from the biting cold. The wearable shields are being sold online on Taobao, which is the country’s largest web-based mall, and are available in a variety of colors and patterns.Continue Reading

Go Cruisin’ on the Scrooser Electric Scooter

Scrooser

Vespas can be incredibly bulky, although they’re relatively comfortable to ride on. Segways can cut your travel time down in half, but it can also make you look like a fool in the process if you’ve got poor balance. The solution? The Scrooser, a hybrid vehicle that looks like a cross benween a Vespa and a Segway.

The Scrooser is an electric scooter, but it’s not the like the usual ones where all you have to do is sit and twist the throttle to go your merry way. Instead, you’ve got to give it a good kick-off by standing up and kicking at the ground to move it along. The direct-drive 1,000-watt electric motor helps you along by amplifying that initial burst of speed with four times as much power.

The Only Scooter You Will Ever Need

By Jonathan Kimak

I’ve never been a big fan of scooters, I prefer the little extras that a car offers, stereo, power windows and not having to eat flies while driving. This one little scooter has changed my mind on the subject.

You can’t buy this scooter, you’d have to make it yourself and it could cost you some serious money depending on how much spare cash you have lying around.

With a scooter, $1300 for materials and 23 hours of working time a regular scooter was converted into a war machine. The improved scooter was created for a promotional campaign and has features such as: GPS Navigation, Skype calling on the road, low power pirate radio broadcast ability, and its own WiFi hot spot.

It also has an 8 inch LCD touchscreen, a web cam, TV antenna, laser keyboard and bluetooth headset and a small system status updater that monitors the computer(housed under the seat) and can alert you to incoming emails and the local weather.

Truly you would never want to drive anything else after riding this.
