From 9to5Toys.com:

When Ninebot and Segway first partnered last year, we caught wind of a potential mini transporter that was coming to market in Europe. Details were slim at the time but we expected to see this people mover make its way to the United States. Fast forward to today, Segway of North America has officially announced the miniPRO, a smart self-balancing two-wheeled transporter that is stacked with technology.

Coming in at less than $1,000, the latest Segway has some serious potential thanks to an impressive 800W motor that provides enough electric-powered range to get to work and back. Head below to see the hands-free transporter in action.

WSJ:

There are roughly a dozen companies making electric skateboards, versus just a handful a few years ago, according to people in the nascent industry. There are skateboard lights, skateboard locks, skateboard storage racks, and boards made from recycled fishnets. The skateboard, it seems, has become a hotbed of innovation.

None of this stuff is aimed at what you might call real skateboarders. Instead it is for the growing number of urban professionals who don’t want to drive to work. Kyle Doerksen, inventor of the Onewheel, illustrated this distinction while touting his contraption’s powerful brakes.

Where the Segway left off, the motoized skateboard comes in. The venerable skateboard is certainly not as stable but for those of us who grew up perfecting our balance and who still have some of that skill left, this is a great and dare I say, fun mode of transportation (even up hills). The Li-Ion tech just makes the boards lighter.

Just make sure there are smooth streets without potholes and rocks on your commute.
