Jason McNeil Posted September 13, 2016 Share Posted September 13, 2016 Sorry everyone for the Radio Silence over these past two weeks—came down with something after the trip, hope it's not Zika... To a Wheel enthusiast, with the exception of Inmotion, there wasn't much else of interest : one maker licensed the Bugatti marque for their $350 Electric push-scooter, talk about brand prostitution....; another 'Hoverboard' exhibitor claimed to be 'German Engineered, German Designed,German BS...', nothing but an OEM of a $100 board! Ran into @Henrik Olsen & the Uniriders group who drove all the way from Denmark, met up for a group ride & dinner along with Wheel maestro Alex Segmuller. Security hassled us about riding the Wheel, but only outside in the deserted parking spaces, cries of "Das ist verboten!" still ring in my ears. On my last day, Alex had the brilliant idea of riding around the show until we got thrown out. He made a valiant effort—there wasn't a booth babe who hadn't been swooped up on his shoulders or danced with—it wasn't until we hit the citadel of the Samsung Hall that we were not too gently told to leave—took some video that I'll be posting a bit later. Inmotion released three new products at private Press Event: a light-weight handled scooter (the L8), the seated scooter (the P1), and a new type of 'Hoverboard' that has sensors instead of the central pivoting action, all are exceptional in their respected class. I had the pleasure of having dinner with the CEO of Inmotion, Vic Zhou. He's the mastermind behind Inmotion's pursuit of innovation. I think Inmotion is the only PEV company that has a leading Expert at the helm of the company, it definitely shows in their approach to development & in the new products that are making their way into the marketplace.
