  1. Or when you open the trolley handle. But indeed, that would be a nice feature.
  2. It's not called a gyroscope. A gyroscope is a sensor. It's called a flywheel. The problem with a lateral gyro is that there is no way the wheel can actually do something with the input to stabilise left-right. The solution would be to integrate a flywheel, but that would create an entire list of other issues wrt inertia when you want to turn. If you think your Z10 is hard to turn, try turning it with a flywheel installed Also, this seems the solution to a problem that isn't one, and might cause more problems than what it solves.
  3. We've got cars like that (although in Belgium they do require insurance and a very simple to acquire license) Top speed 28mph
  4. Z10 also has this. I don't really understand the use. how would you trigger the trolley? If it is with a button on the wheel you might as well just grab the trolley handle
  5. Buy a boosted board and ride it for a week. Then take your euc. Your euc will feel like a Mercedes S class
  6. They use EUC's in the army now?
  7. So you have to do this sound per sound?
  8. Try a 20kg child. All of the sudden the Inmotion V5F becomes a long range wheel
  9. For that budget you need to order in China: depending on your needs: https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/32832889643.html https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/32877973445.html https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/32888508616.html or for 100 Euro extra you have this really great wheel in 800Wh version: https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/32852802800.html
  10. Not really a fan of riding with a motorcycle helmet on an euc. Too warm.
  11. Oh boy .. just watched it. My first idea "WTF, spraying oil on roads, that will be good for the soil ..." little did I know of what was coming next. This is just insane, and I guess just one story out of many. Pretty sure we don't know half of what happens with some industrial waste, even with the chemical knowledge and regulations we have today.
  12. The problem in general is people tend to take the good stuff in our lives from granted, without regards to how these things came into place or how quickly they can disappear if we change some things. I see exactly the same in Europe, where more and more people want to get rid of the European Union. They want that all while at the same time living the good live thanks to: - no more roaming costs (you can go anywhere in the EU with your mobile phone and call and use data at the same price as at home) - in lots of countries you pay with the same currency (no need for exchanging money, being stuck with coins and notes you will store somewhere to forget you have them on your next trip, and losing money every time you exchange your currency) - you can easily order online from plenty of stores in other EU countries, with cheap shipping and no taxation / import duties to pay, or just buy stuff abroad and bring it with you. - you can easily move around between countries without losing heaps of times at customs or needing visa/documents/... - you can go work in any country in the EU - certification for food / toys / ... is regulated on a European level, so you know that the norms applied are the same everywhere and that there is verification of the safety of consumer goods. Same for the contents of certain foods/drinks. It is regulated what can can't be in some of those things so at least you know that the name represents a certain set of ingredients - the fact that we have 1 market gives us a lot more negotiation leverage when discussing for instance the above point - stability and therefore peace - I can go on and on But no, we want to throw all that under the bus (imagine negotiating all the above points except of course for the currency, which would simply be impossible, in bilateral agreements with all other countries individually, or what importance a small country like Belgium or The Netherlands would have when negotiating trade with a country such as the USA ... what a nightmare) because FOREIGNERS, REFUGEES and ISLAM!!!! Same with Brexit. Most brexiteers insist on getting stuff back to the UK which is already under UK supervision. They want to take back control over their borders. Well guess what, the UK is not a part of Schengen, so they do already have control over their borders. You can't just go visit the UK without passing border control. They want to get rid of all the money going to Europe, in the mean time forgetting the money Europe pours into certain regions in the UK. And then all of the sudden they realise that if they get their "hard border", there will also be a "hard border" between the United Kingdom and Ireland, because Ireland stays in the EU, and nobody really has a solution for that. And then they want to turn the clock back to a pre-EU period and negotiate trade independently, as if the EU never existed, getting mad at the EU for not wanting to play along in their game. Well, guess what, if you decide to divorce from me how do you expect me to behave as if we were never together before and negotiate stuff from a neutral standpoint? That's not going to happen, moreover as doing this would show other countries with lots of nationalist citizens that there is an easy way out if they feel like it. They like to use Switzerland as the perfect example, while not understanding that: - Switzerland pays the EU and has to implement a lot of EU rules to have access to the EU market - Switzerland has no part in the EU decision taking process while having to apply those rules (what do you prefer, having to implement rules and have a say in them, or having to implement them without having a say in them?) - These constructions are such a clusterfuck that the EU rather not do this again and I guess in hindsight they would have never done them in the first place. - Switzerland is part of Schengen, unlike the UK https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Switzerland–European_Union_relations /rant over
  13. Pretty hard to read - I don't understand Greek - links are hidden if you are not registered - pictures are hidden if you are not registered. Would you mind giving us a summary here? Thanks!
  14. Doesn't work. It works fine in the 1.7 version of the app.
  15. I just tried installing the sounds but the Ninetool Beta simply doesn't find my Z10 :/
  16. Well actually, you could. You have a lot more sun than Norway, when it comes to solar energy
  17. What do you mean by this? Also, if you want to use convincing arguments: posting on an American (for most of the members) forum that the majority of employees (and therefore, visitors of this forum) are unreliable to work with is for sure not going to help you win any debate, as from that point on that majority will stop reading or think that because of these generalisations the rest of your arguments are nonsense too. And if this was true and we generalise further, what about the Chinese, where you are obliged to have your western-designed product built and assembled on different sites because if you don't they will make cheap copies of it within a couple of weeks of starting production, not mentioning the fact that intellectual property does not exist over there? It's like posting on an NRA forum that all gun owners are crazy in-bred rednecks, and then trying to convince them to hand over their guns.
  18. @MRN76 using the latest beta my phone cannot find my Z10. In the 1.7 it finds the Z10
  19. And let's not forget the damage done to the farmers in the US after China also imposed tariffs on certain US-sourced products: https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2019/5/17/18626664/farmers-trump-trade-war-china and then the government starts handing out money to those farmers ( isn't that "socialist" and against free market principals?), at the same time helping companies from the country it is trying to punish. https://www.vox.com/2018/10/23/18013734/trump-china-trade-war-steel-tariffs And the American tax payer has to cough up all those billions in aide. The world economy is a very complex place. You can't just go slapping tariffs on all kinds of stuff and think it only will hurt them, not you. The only ones that got a better deal out of this is US steel. All the rest is suffering (more or less). And the main victim of this all is the American consumer, and all American companies that produce overseas (unless, like Apple, they have a lot of lobbying power and get exceptions).
  20. FYI I do agree with the fact that there is some unfair competition coming from China. It's just stupid to introduce tariffs on stuff where people simply have no choice but to buy Chinese. If you tax cars built abroad you can still choose to not buy them and buy a locally produced one. With a TV or a euc it's a bit more complicated.
  21. Also: https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/10-countries-with-the-highest-industrial-outputs-in-the-world.html China has the world’s largest industrial output. In 2016 it is estimated that the country produced $4.566 trillion of industrial output. Despite being the largest economy, the United States ranked behind China and the European Union in terms of industrial output. Numbers from 2016 Since 2010 China has surpassed the US.
  22. It will just shift to other Asian countries. Same shit, different country. Will still not help the local economy. So again: why slap tariffs on consumer electronics, but not on smartphones, tablets and smart watches? And China is not a communist country. It's a dictatorship. Communist means that everything is state owned. Pretty hard becoming a billionaire in that kind of country.
