We truly do live in exciting times and with all of the technological innovations taking place daily, we are seeing the way that we live radically transformed right in front of our eyes. For instance, leaps in electrical personal transportation, like the smart, self-balancing Segway miniPro.
We are all familiar with the Segway but with the Segway miniPro, we find a personal transportation device that has been condensed in size but expanded in features.
The frame of the miniPro has been designed to be lightweight and yet, incredibly durable by constructing it out of aircraft grade magnesium alloy. This combined with the 10.5” vacuum tires gives the miniPro military-grade shock resistance as well as an extremely smooth ride. This little beast is powered by an 800-watt dual motor that was engineered to be able to handle bumps, slopes and other terrain without compromising safety. We found it pretty impressive that it has a maximum payload of 220lbs, a top speed of 10 miles per hour, as well as a range of 14 miles. Check out the video below.
Unlike the larger Segway, where you use your hands to actually steer, the miniPro is fitted with cushioned knee pads that allow you to steer. However, it is not entirely necessary because the miniPro can actually connect to your smartphone via the mobile app that will allow you to access features such as unmanned operation, speed control, customizable lights, vehicle diagnostics, firmware updates and even an anti-theft alarm.
The Segway miniPro is also UL2272 Certified and meets all the new requirements that was set by Underwriter Laboratories for electrical and fire-hazard safety. You can purchase the miniPro in white and black.
