Never been much into scooters, though I blame a close encounter with the pavement on my very first attempt to ride a skateboard for that. No matter, us “feet-walkers” can still appreciate good industrial design. Take IlIum Corporation’s “E’lution” scooters, which it’s trying to push into full production via a Kickstarter campaign.
If I started telling you about a new all-wheel-drive, turbo diesel-powered off-roader, you’d probably think I was talking about a 4×4 truck or SUV, right? Wrong. Check out the RNT, a concept from Indian motorcycle company Hero that could be the only back-country survival tool a motorcycle adventurer would ever need.
If the only thing stopping you from riding around town on a Segway is, well, looking like someone riding around town on a Segway, this enhanced version might make you a little less hesitant about being seen in public on one. And it’s all thanks to a handful of Vespa scooters that had to sacrifice their lives for this creation.
Before you scoff in disbelief at the $450 price tag on this adorable children’s toy, remember that you’re actually getting two ride-ons for the price of one here. The Mini Runner, made from a hydroformed lightweight aluminium frame, converts from a sit down balance bike to a standing scooter with minimal fuss and muss.

Unless you’re riding a tandem, bicycles aren’t really designed for two passengers. You can jam a child seat on the back for infants, or a couple of pegs on the back wheel to carry a friend, but neither of those solutions seem as novel or original as Jared Loveless’s scooteRack: a rear-mounted retractable scooter that serves as a trailer for passengers.
IKEA’s furniture isn’t just cheap and easy to transport, it’s easy to hack too, with sites like IKEA Hackers showcasing some of the best modifications. But none can top this hack by Andreas Bhend and Samuel N. Bernier that converts a couple of Ikea Frosta stools into a pedal-less bike — or draisienne if you really want to get technical.
