Choosing transportation within the city can sometimes require serious planning. For example, there is a place you need to go to that is too close to go by car, but too far if you want to go on foot. Options such as bicycles and scooters can be dangerous due to the inconvenience of urban traffic. Shift Robotics has developed a brand new transportation plan that will come in handy in just such a situation. These skate-like vehicles, called Moonwalkers, have a DC motor that distributes power to all 8 wheels and can increase your average walking speed by up to 250%.
Moonwalkers’ ergonomic hinge system allows your toes to bend naturally. At the same time, the built-in artificial intelligence algorithm (AI) uses machine learning to adapt to your gait over time so you can feel it as a natural part of you.
When you reach the place you want to go, you can easily take it off your feet and put it in your bag, and take care of your business. Since it is worn with your daily shoes, this process can be done very effortlessly. Moonwalkers, IP54 water resistant, can be fully charged in 1.5 hours with the USB-C port. You can reach a maximum speed of about 7 mph (10 kph) with this device, which offers a range of 5 to 7 miles on a single charge. Click here if you want more information.
