URB-E: the fold-up, ride-on electric scooter

Navigate the trails of the concrete jungle with this trusty electric sidekick

Why are you wheeling around a portable oxygen tank?
Thanks for your concern, but we’re as fit as an orchestra of fiddles. But you’ve got the portable bit right; the URB-E weighs just 13kg, and it's all about helping you breathe easily. By ensuring that you don't have to walk at all. 

You’ve got my attention, tell me more.
Lazy bu- we mean, what a curious cat you are! The compact URB-E unfolds into an electric scooter with a top speed of 24kph. Its lithium battery takes only 3 hours to charge and it'll chug merrily along for up to 32km before it needs another drink of electricity.

That’s it?
We weren't quite done before you jumped in. There’s a nifty power override feature that lets you unlock the URB-E with your mobile device.

Just remember to keep your eyes on the road, so you don't run over someone's granny.

I’m ready to never walk another step in my life.
Unfortunately, the URB-E is just getting started on Indiegogo. It’s available in three variants - the Commuter, GP and Black. The luxury of cruising nonchalantly past everyone on their way to work can be yours for just US$800. Get on it already.
