Would have loved to try this when I was younger and still had all of my limbs.
It looks like 20MPH fun, so New York will outlaw them for sure.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
That thing is HOT

Not to discredit this guys (I'm sure there's a lot of kids out there that will love this), but I'm gonna get myself a Goped "iPed2". I weight around 195 pounds (90 kg) so I need a lot of stopping power. Not to mention the handle bar on a scooter can really improve safety. It is also small enough to go inside public transportation and despite the cost (1500 bucks for the 10 miles range, lighter model) its worth every penny.
I like it but really my trips that are within 5 miles usually require me carrying something back like groceries. I can actually carry a lot of grocery bags in one trip but I don't know how safe that would be while driving a vehicle like this. Plus I would probably have to make 1 trip then charge it and do another one generally. ROFL jk well not but this looks like fun if you live downtown or something!
I'm thinking of taking out a patent on a light, portable device for commutes up to, say, 25 km (although I've tested it on runs of over 600 km). It has (nearly) unlimited battery life and goes under the working names of «velocipede» and/or «bicycle». Perhaps I, too, should appeal to Kickstarter ?...
PS : Have to check out whether Apple has already patented this innovative device....
How do you stop???? It sounds like fun, scary fun :)
