I know the Segway Ninebot miniPro looks more like the forbidden love-child of a hover board and a unicycle than a useful vehicle, but it’s not.
It’s actually a cool way to cruise around town at speeds up to 10 mph. However, it’s really the 14 mile (35 km) range that makes the Ninebot worth having. Think about it; if you have a short commute in town, this might be better than a car. If nothing else, you’ll save gas since it’s electric. Also, you don’t have to worry about parking (another savings in both time and money).
Oh, and it’s affordable at about the same price as a medium-sized flat-screen TV.
Even though it’s inexpensive, it still has the self balancing features of the older Segway models along with a bunch of new features like anti-theft alarm, customizable, and remote control via Bluetooth.
Yes, that’s right, if you’re so lazy you can’t be bothered to walk down the hall to your miniPro, you can use your phone as a remote control to bring it to you.
It’s easy to ride and the manufacturer claims you can learn how to ride it in just a few minutes.
So, if you always kind of wanted a Segway but couldn’t afford one, check out the links and the video for more information.
