Vooba Scooter

You have seen me scooting around Vancouver in my prototype scooter.  Thank you for your interest.

I wanted something smaller than a bike, but easier than walking.

At this time, it is still a work in progress, as I work to improve the design and electronics, and lower the cost.  It is a challenging ride, and perhaps dangerous for people not used to snowboarding or skateboarding.

For the cost of a gallon of gas, the scooter will travel 4000 miles.  Top "tested" speed is 32 km/hour.  Typical range is 35-45 km on one charge.  Unit weighs about 35 pounds and very easy to store.

If you would like follow the progress or the final product,
send me an email at

Thank you.
