BOSSY SEGBOARD SCOOTER
Both our Segboards, the BOSSY and the BOSSMAN, feel as if they can read your mind. They move you automatically in the direction you want to go (with a bit of steering that is).
The BOSSY Segboard Scooter from “Hoverboard UK” is powered by two 400 watts, 36V Lithium-Ion engines. It can run on stone-paved roads, over grass, off-road, and on angles which slope more than 15 degrees. The inflatable 10” tyres help to buffer your ride. The maximum speed is 15km/h which feels extremely fast because of your upright position. It takes 2-3 hours to charge the battery fully, but only 30 minutes to charge up to 80% (magic). Connecting to your phone or tablet via Bluetooth and listen to music is one of the great features of the PIFF electric scooter. There is a remote which lets you switch the unit on and off.
HOW DOES BOSSY WORK?
BOSSY is an electric scooter with lateral wheels. So, it’s a machine that has to copy what we bi-pedal humans do and learns to stay in balance. As you lean forward, gravity wants to take you down. And it would, except BOSSY ’s wheels automatically pick up speed to keep the platform beneath you level. Same goes for reverse. Lean back and that’s where you go. The wheels are spinning in that direction to keep you from hitting the ground. Angular sensors detect changes in direction and speed. Tilt sensors detect angles. Together these sensors provide data that allow the machine to determine if you are about to tip over. It senses the command to the wheels and tries to keep you upright. No matter which way you lean BOSSY is always one step ahead of you.
To turn push the control stick to one side. This decreases power to the inside wheel and spins the outside one faster. And round you go.
BOSSY has a carrying capacity of up to 120kg
Emission free motor. The gear box is inside the wheel assembly. The gears also help to limit the speed to about 15km per hour. When you are done for the day, ride over to a wall socket, plug BOSSY in, and in no time it is ready to ride again. This machine may not rule our pavements just yet, but it’s finding a way into our transport systems one wheel at a time.
