5 Of The Best Personal Transport Gadgets!
5 Of The Best Personal Transport Gadgets!
So personal transport gadgets have recently become the next big thing and it gives us a clue to what we might expect in the future.
My guess would be that one day it will completely normal to see people whizzing through the streets on some high tech gadget, hopefully one that actually hovers.
But if you don’t want to wait, there are some pretty decent gadgets available right now.
As always I want to give a big shoutout to viewer The Driver for suggesting this video.
Check out my second channel More5! for funny, weird, interesting news, along with the latest trending topics within the YouTube community.

It is gyro-stabilized so its not that difficult to ride, and can actually be pretty useful.
To me it is more of a fun gadget than an actual vehicle one would use for their daily commute, but I may be completely wrong.
You would love it in a big open space, like a college campus, riding from class to class but probably hate it on a rainy cold morning, in rush hour, with hundreds of people to dodge and avoid.
And lets face it, you’d have to have some pretty big balls to take it on the road with cars driving right by you.
So while it looks really fun to ride, and has its uses in certain situations, I doubt it will ever become a mainstream method of travel.
This bit of tech blew up in popularity thanks to many celebrities, youtubers, and other social media stars using them in their videos.
It was a must have product until it blew up again.
Only this time they literally started blowing up, making them obviously dangerous.
This caused a huge backlash, many large retailers like Amazon banned them from sale, airlines refused to carry them on flights, and sales went down drastically.
They are now viewed as dangerous, and even if I purchased one now from a respectable company, I would still be a bit nervous leaving it to charge overnight.
If I owned a hoverboard company, I would change the way my boards look, to make it appear as a new version and rid my boards from the bad reputation.
3) Boosted Board
They are no where near as popular as the hoverboard, but that’s probably to do with the fact they are much more expensive.
This is a proper vehicle, you can use in your everyday life.
Don’t take my word for it, just hop over to Casey Neistat’s channel and watch him blast through the busy streets of New York on a daily basis.
In fact lets face it, Casey Neistat is one of the main reasons the boosted board has become pretty famous and you can see their appeal, they can achieve speeds of up to 22mph, you control them with a remote in your hand, and can travel you a good 8 miles on a single charge.
The walkcar is basically a tiny laptop sized platform with 4 wheels and an electric motor.
It works by shifting your weight in the direction you want to go in.
Whats really cool about this tiny gadget is its specs.
It can fit in any backpack and weighs only about 2.5kg which is about 5 and a half pounds.
Secondly it can reach speeds of about 6.2 mph.
Thirdly a full charge can give you about 7.2 miles of range.
However there are a few downsides.
I can imagine its tiny wheels wont be useful on anything that isn’t a flat smooth surface and its price will be about $800.
1) Electric Bicycle
Electric bicycles are nothing new.
They have been around for years.
They are still very expensive compared to a standard bike.
If you forget about the price and just see it for what it is,
Its a vehicle which is easy to control, easy to steer, easy to brake, and can move you at some very decent speeds.
The only downside is bikes aren’t the most portable vehicle.
You still have to chain them up, and with the rise of bike thefts in most cities, you can easily lose a couple thousands dollars in a matter of minutes.
Even if you installed some kind of key ignition, its still a bike and the thief can just pedal away.
However despite that, out of all the personal transport gadgets out there, sometimes the old fashioned way is still the most effective.

cheapest option walk
Hey man you are better than Eminen…. your rap is really good
you shit hed uh uh uh
Hey now, your an all five
You should have mentioned hovertrax the original hoverboard made by the same company that made solowheel and is made in the USA not those cheap china bombs
Learn how to long board, a great longboard would only cost like 150 ish
These are the times when i want to hear robotic voice rather 🙂
number 2 is one of my favorites, however, i wish it could ride over cracks and rugget terrain better based on what this video showed. number 1 is definitely a no, you’d have to lock up your bike, and people even stole small scooters i looked up thinking it was unstealable. i’d never want to take that risk again. number is just too large of a vehicle, wherever you go it won’t be secure there can be stolen.
i really like hoverboards which is number 5. they even make different kinds now like offroading hoverboards, which is cool i want some. i also want segway is pretty much the same as hoverboard but more professional looking and a bit larger. they even have segways now that don’t have the large handle in front, that alot more like segways.
are you rapping
6.2 mph dude I can run faster than that
Monowheel was first!! It came out before Solowheel….
lol it sounds like hes rapping with the music I was sooo confused for a min
The way he talks is amazing
What’s the one that looks like a rug
He is rapping
Electric bike is now obsolete in electric vehicle world. Because electric kick scooters and mono wheels are mutch more more and MORE better.
I like the video. Do the segway es2 next?
you missed the ninebot mini pro
Whast is number 2 i cant hear at hall
Electric unicycles get up to 30mph and 100miles in 1 charge I think they win
His voice Lol, is he from India?
He is man siri
a bike is good, but an e-skateboard I can easily bring inside my apartment, take it to places easier than I can a bike, climb over a fence/wall and still have my transport vehicle with me etc.
Pagol boka chare kaj nai.nonsense
That walk car thing is useless on anything but a flat surface, pothole in the pavement – fail ! Unless…. you put a fruit logo on it, then all the sheep will buy it 🙂
1:05 this gadget was sawen in a country people just stared interested on the guy on gadget thingy
I couldn´t control the hoover board
number 2 is the stupidest thing I have ever seen. I can walk faster than that. The only reason I would get any personal transporter would be to save me legitimate time.
Your accent is so heavy
the walk car looks like if you even hit a pebble with those tiny wheels, plus your weight and balance being very precarious, your gonna take a massive header.
I would like to see people trying to ride their hover board on horrible sidewalk.
Stop calling it a Hoverboard, it doesn’t hover!!!!!!!
And the unicycles can go over so many terrains
Interesting, but all probably not usable for the aged or handicapped
Check out the ZBoard!!! It’s the best electric skateboard for commuting.
That’s never happened to me
you forgot kingsong and gotway electric unicycles D:
thiz iz zuper zweet!
This guy talks better than some people rap 😂
Don’t charge the hoverboard overnight you idiot😤🤦♂️
He’s an engaging announcer and the videos are great. Learned a lot about it.
Stop sounding gay as phuc.
I know your target audience is young healthy people, but please stop saying things like, if your too lazy to pedal, ect. For those folks that have mobility issues (many are looking for these types of personal transport), it makes it sound like we have a choice.
Not trying to not pick, just helping you understand, the very people that are looking for alternative methods of transport, it may be because they have a limitation.
Otherwise, great vid.
I want #2
EUC is the most fun, useful transport vehicle.
personal transportation? the bike maybe but the rest is just toys
