Best Motorised Unicycles and Self Balancing Smart Scooters – Get around in style

Why should kids have all the fun? While children have long been the beneficiaries of wheeled-contraptions, a new trend has been taking place – There are now ‘electric wheels’ for adults too. These range from the typical two-wheeled scooter to the new mono-wheel device.

Forget the hoverboard, this is as good as it gets, at least for now.

These appear to be a great answer to easing that commute to work while avoiding traffic jams. More suited to the local commute, these ‘vehicles’ provide the convenience of not having to park a car and yet provide a subtle form of exercise. The size efficiency of these also mean that they can be packed and stored under the desk at work until it’s time to go home.

Best Self Balancing Two Wheel Electric Scooters and Motorised Electric Monocycles

Skque Two Wheel Self Balancing Electric ScooterYou may have seen one hitting the pavement or sidewalk near you. If you have not seen one, the 2-wheel self balancing electric scooter is a motorised personal transportation device. No bigger in foot print than say a small skate board, the scooter, sometimes known as a drift board or hover board is a high-tech self balancing scooter, double balanced with built-in gyroscope and gravity sensor.

It’s easy to control: just adjust your body weight center, and the scooter will flexibly move forward, backward, left, right, and even turn 360 degree in a spot. You can be up and running with one of these self balancing electric scooters in no time. A quick tutorial to help you get started:

How to use a 2-Wheel Self Balancing Electric Scooter

Step 1: Press the power button to turn on self-balancing electric scooter.

Step 2: Step onto the scooter using one foot on the pedal to trigger the foot-switch. The scooter will automatically come into self-balancing mode. You can then take the next step and climb onboard. If you are unsure, you can always step off again. The height between the scooter and ground is so small, there is really no real danger in simply stepping off if you need to. Self balancing system will keep you upright.

Step 3: Next, take control of the scooter by leaning forward or backward slightly and slowly to move forward and backward respectively. To steer right or left, push your foot down like you would when stepping on the foot pedal of an accelerator. The foot pedals tilt and rotate slightly rocking forward or backward depending on which foot you push down. This activates the motor on the foot turning right or left.

In less than 5 minutes you’ll be up and riding around. Most people master it in as little as 30 seconds. Once you ride it you’ll never want to get off!
