A combination between a skateboard along with a segway, this miniature Segway (without the handle) sort thing is blowing up in popularity, fuelled in part by the amount of celebs which have been seen on one. From Justin Bieber Kendall Jenner to Jamie Foxx, to Soulja Boy, all have tried their hand and appear to have had lots of fun doing so.

Nicknamed the'swegway' (because of it's likeness to the Segway, but a 'trendier' variation) we're uncertain entirely where this particular electrical scooter originated from or who devised the first. It originated from some factory in China. The initial peeks we saw of it were a product known as a scooter that sells for a whopping $1800, the IO Hawk. Since many more affordable variants of the exact same product have come on the marketplace and also the typical cost in the moment seems to be around $500.

How can it work? Essentially you stand on the two panels and shift your body weight slightly forward or slightly back and it senses this bodyweight change and goes backwards or forwards. It can also turn left or right. This scooter is proving to be so popular it is really being touted as the private mobility device of the future. Who would like to walk when you are able to glide, right? Plus it's a lot faster than walking, travelling at speeds of 6mph to 10mph.

Where can you buy one? These are available on quite a few different websites but under different brand names and at vastly different prices. For instance the IO Hawk mentioned above is $1800 while the Phunkeeduck is about $1500 and much more affordable is the Monorover R2 which comes in at only $400-$600 (depending on where you buy it). What's the difference between all these? None at all. In fact they're all almost precisely the same except for several small, barely noticeable differences. It just depends on your own financial plan and whether or not brand name is vital to you.
