The Commooter Scooter

Do you live in a crowded city? Do you commute to work via public transportation? Do you hate the walk to the bus stop or subway station? Are you a business person with lots of Very Important Time Sensitive Documents to transport? If you answered yes to these questions then read on!

A small company called Green Energy Motors has developed the perfect solution for those quick jaunts between home and whatever gets you to work. It’s tentatively called the “Commute-Case” and will be advertised as “Your Urban In-Between Commute Solution”. It’s an awesome idea, really, and may help you catch your train when your tie’s failure to knot properly has you running a little behind.

Basically, it’s an electric scooter built with Segway technology for gyroscopic balance and steering. But there’s ever so much more. The base has the necessary foot rests which let your ankles straddle a “briefcase” to house all of those aforementioned Documents along with your lunch and that cool pen with your name on it that you got last Christmas. When it isn’t being used as transportation it serves as a nice handheld briefcase as well.

It “deploys” in three to five seconds and uses no gas. Its lithium-ion battery fully charges in one hour and gets 25 miles per charge. Traveling at 12.5 mph, the scooter is sure to get you where you need to be in record time.

Keep your eyes open for the sales campaign which will probably start sometime this month. A July 15th release date is projected. You can secure one now for a $149 deposit and lock in the introductory price of $2995, which is half of the full future price of $6000.
