There is so much talk about Uber setting our transportation world on its head, and it is and will continue to, however there is also another disruptive technology that is about infiltrate our cities, challenging citizens and lawmakers to accommodate its arrival.
Actually, it is already here as I’ve seen it in use on a CTrain platform this week. Personal Mobility Devices are poised to radically transform how we get around. Right now they are in the enthusiast – early adopter realm, however that may now be over as you can pick one up at your local Staples store. A quick check on YouTube reveals that this is a strong and burgeoning industry, with Chinese manufacturers leading the way.
The only problem is that these devices are really only designed to work in summertime weather. Snow and ice are not their friends.
I guess Canadians can hope for something cool and innovative like the DTV Shredder to get us through our long, cold winters.
