A Seriously Cool Way of Moving
The world has seen some strange inventions in the past, but this one could be up there with the strangest, or coolest, inventions yet. However, we’ll give it some slack because it could also be the healthiest invention we’ve seen in quite a long time.
Called the Lopifit, this is a curiously eccentric scooter/bike that’s said to be ‘the world’s first electric walking bicycle’. In case you are wondering; it’s something between a bicycle and a treadmill, but more of an outdoor treadmill on a scooter, if that makes sense.
Unsurprisingly, it was developed by Dutch citizen Bruin Bergmeester (Dutch people have a knack for creating bizarrely odd bikes) who got bored of walking on an indoor treadmill and found a way of taking it on the road.
Luckily, this idea will now help people get even more exercise while getting some outside fresh air, but will come at a price as it slated to cost around $2500. One of the key features is a battery that can enable it cover up to 34 miles on a single four-hour charge.
So next time you want to ramp up some distance on an irregular bike just find yourself a Lopifit. It’s currently available in the United States, Canada, some parts of Europe and the Middle East. Happy Biking..er Treadmilling…er…well you know what we mean.
