I didn’t anticipate the Segway Loomo, a mini-transporter cum robotic, can obtain the Indiegogo goal inside 2 hours. With preliminary perks of 45% low cost (USD999) for the primary 100 supporters, it was rapidly snapped up.

It’s attention-grabbing that Segway makes use of a crowd-funding platform to advertise Loomo. Take a look at the intro video.

In case you are in Asia, you might be out of luck. Segway shouldn’t be delivery to Asia international locations. Actually, at begin, Segway solely ship to United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and chosen EU international locations (Germany, France, The Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Austria, Denmark, Norway, Italy, Spain, and Portugal).

In case you are nonetheless , you possibly can nonetheless get it at USD1,299 (restricted to 200 models solely).

I consider that is the beginning of sensible transporters. With the promise of OTA to enhance the capabilities, I can solely assume that Loomo will develop into extra helpful and cleverer.
