Urb-E Makes City Travel A Breeze

The Urb-E looks like a giant razor on wheels. Of course, the device is really just an electrically powered scooter, which comes in both two- and three-wheel designs. (The little kid in me who never learned how to ride a bike says three.)

You can fold it up and take it with you on any commuter bus or train when it runs out of juice (after around 20 miles of travel time per charge). Get yours now through Indiegogo. The pricing is a bit tricky. If you donate $299, that will lock you in for a total of $1,799 at a later date. Wait until after the campaign is over, and you’ll need to fork over the full MSRP of $1,999. Pricey, yes, but it won’t take long to save on gas and car insurance.
