One-wheel scooter: Moto Pogo
If you like big motorcycle tires, you can have a scooter that looks like one. It is called Moto Pogo. This vehicle is a one-wheel electric scooter. When you want to go forward, you must bend the body forward. When you want to slow down, you will have to lean back. When a driver wants to turn left or right, he must lean to the desired direction. It is stable thanks to built in accelerometers, a microcomputer and gyroscopes. This scooter has the battery at 10 amps. The motor is 500 watts. Together, they can reach the top speed of 25 km/h. It isn’t very fast, but for moving through the city, it is more than enough. With just one charge, you can travel 30 kilometers. You will need from 3 to 5 hours to completely recharge the battery. The Moto Pogo also has LED lights (back and front), the regenerative braking and rear mudguard. The frame is made from aluminum, so it is very light. In fact, the weight of the scooter is just 29 kg.
The maximum load is 150 kg, so even adult people can ride Moto Pogo. Because it is small, it can fit in an average car. You can carry it when you are traveling, and you can use for moving through the city when you arrive. The designer of Moto Pogo is Carl Dagenais, a Canadian entrepreneur. Many people don’t like Moto Pogo because it has just one wheel, so they think it is unstable. However, it has many systems that will keep the balance, so there is no reason for concern.
