The original hoverboard maker is back with another weird self-balancing scooter
The hoverboard craze might be dead, but that's not stopping the man who started the trend in the first place from trying again. Shane Chen, the man who runs Inventist — the company behind the Solowheel and the Hovertrax hoverboard — has returned to Kickstarter to crowdfund a new rideable called the Solowheel Iota.
The $600 Iota ($395 on Kickstarter) is a cross between Chen's two most recognizable products. You ride it by standing on pedals with the wheels and motors between your feet, much like the Solowheel. But the Iota actually has two wheels inside the central housing, making it look sort of like someone cut a hoverboard in half and glued the opposite ends together.
