The Kruzer Self-Balancing Two-Wheel Electric Scooter Launches on Indiegogo
You’ve been seeing them pop up all over the place, they’ve piqued your curiosity, and, let’s be honest here, you’ve considered how you can talk yourself into buying one. Self-balancing, electric scooters are the Razr scooters for today’s generation of kids young and old. They’re a hot, futuristic-kind-of item that burst onto the scene seemingly out of the middle of nowhere.
And today, a new entrant into the market was announced. The Kruzer is a two-wheel electric self-balancing scooter that launched on Indiegogo with the goal of raising $10,000 in 30 days. (As of late Tuesday morning, with the project just a few hours old, it had raised 6 percent of its goal.)
The inventors of the Kruzer describe the product as a cross between a scooter and a skateboard and said it is a “perfect gift” for the 15 to 50-year-old high-tech enthusiast. The Kruzer is designed to self-balance, responding to how the user is leaning. The rider simply steps on, leans forward, and goes. The Kruzer has a max speed of about seven miles-per-hour.
