Here is a new innovative project that emerges through Kickstarter
, a site linking innovators and the public.
SpnKiX is the creation of Peter Treadway, easy to use you put them on in a few seconds and you're off for 3 to 5 km at a maximum speed of 16kph. A real range extender for your walking!
Each SpinKiX has an electric motor and a removable battery, allowing to charge easily but also to have several batteries for longer trips. The left and right "shoes" are synchronized and controlled with a wireless remote.
Peter turned to Kickstarter with a $ 25,000 goal needed for the market release, offering, among other things, the possibility of buying the first units. Just five days after posting the project, the total amount has been harvested and donations are still coming! A reward that crowns five years of work and 30 prototypes developed previously…
Production will begin next year with first deliveries expected in March.
Retail price is $ 649 excluding transport
