SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Moboster Corporation today announced the launch of its Indiegogo campaign for the Moboster personal electric vehicle. The multi-purpose platform is designed for the most stable, easy to learn, and safe urban commute possible. State of the art drive system and battery and motor engineering allow for power, speed, and safety in a compact design. The campaign begins November 15, 2016 at an introductory price of $499 for Indiegogo backers. For more information, visit https://igg.me/at/moboster.
The Moboster is the first truly practical personal urban commuting solution that is easy to ride and easy to take anywhere, featuring customizations that allow for endless possibilities for use. The hoverboard and similar personal electric vehicles have seen a meteoric rise in popularity with sales in the USA topping 2.5 million units in 2015 with total revenue of nearly $1 billion, yet the steep learning curve and questionable stability make hoverboards ill fitted to most urban consumers. What e-bikes and e-scooters provide in stability and safety, they sacrifice in portability. The Moboster provides the perfect solution –half the weight of a hoverboard, it features a robotic-like drive system for safe and easy steering.
Practical, Portable, and Personal Commute
The Moboster is fully designed with the modern urban commuter in mind. With an expert engineering team headed by a former Tesla engineer, the Moboster features a robotic drive system designed for smooth maneuvering and speed transitions. Unlike tradition hoverboards, skateboards, or scooters, the Moboster does not require tilting, shifting, or balancing to steer.
The Moboster's main platform does not wobble or tilt during turns, with speeds easily controlled via a Bluetooth remote control, ensuring a smooth and safe ride. Lightweight and foldable, the Moboster's ergonomically-designed carrying handle combined with its foldable carbon fiber and space-grade aluminum frame make it the ideal portable vehicle.
"We set out to create an electrically powered rideable that's easy to stand on, lightweight and highly portable," said Kevin Chiu, Founder of Moboster. "Everything about this vehicle is ground-breaking - its use of the robotic drive system, the lightweight foldable design with a hefty 330 lbs payload capacity, and the top of the line power system. It's the future of urban transportation."
Adjustable to Fit Your Ride, Your Life
The Moboster features modular options that allow users to customize their unit for a variety of different purposes. The Attachment Socket allow for the addition of a variety of on-deck accessories like handlebars or seats while the CAN Bus Upgrade Port extends the Moboster's hardware capabilities. Functions such as auto-follow, course plotting, or line tracking can all be achieved through additional add-ons. The robotic drive system coupled with high payload capacity means the Moboster can be applied to any number of industrial and personal uses, with the ability to carry out various autonomous tasks through future add-ons and upgrades.
The Moboster Features:
Robotic-like drive system - maneuvering is done through wheel speed differentiation, so users don't need to shift, tilt, or balance themselves to steer.
Bluetooth remote control – control speed when you're on the Moboster, and use the Moboster Platform for a wide range of functions when you're off
Adjustable speeds – walk, run, or cycle speed settings with top speeds up to 10mph, with cruise control for those wide-open roads.
3200w Power/Dual BLDC motors – ride up to 11.2m/18km per charge, with uphill starting capabilities up to 15% grade
Regenerative Braking – easy stop, and more energy for when you go
Portable Design – 13.2lb/6 kg foldable design for easy carry, featuring sturdy carbon fiber and space grade aluminum
