December 4, 2007 Around the world, dozens of small businesses are springing up and flourishing based on innovative, compact urban transport
inventions that speed up the short commute while at the same time injecting a healthy dose of fun. The skateboard has evolved into electric powered versions
as well as the twisting casterboard concept
, mini-scooters are going electric
and developing at a rapid rate, and next-gen mobility platforms like the Segway are changing the way people think about short-range transport. Now there's the easyglider, an external electric
drive wheel that lets you zip yourself along at up to 20kmh on your rollerblades, skateboard, or a connected wheeled platform.
