The 2-wheel self-balancing scooter (I know, it’s a mouthful) is the next thing in the evolution of transportation. You have probably seen celebs on this gadget and wondered what the h*ll it was. Well, let’s just say it’s a cross between a skateboard and scooter. Pretty cool, eh?
Over the past months, many celebs have showcased this thing’ummy on social media. The likes of Justin Bieber (who dat?), Chris Brown, Nick Jonas, Zedd, Soulja Boy, Kendall Jenner, JR Smith, Nicki Minaj, Wiz Khalifa, Nina Agdal, David Ortiz, Karim Benzema, and Skrillex. It’s been on theTonight Show, and showed up at the NBA Finals. Breezy is particularly good at it. He incorporates his dance moves while riding it and its just awesome.

Every time it pops up, peeps question what it is and where they can buy it. This baby does not come cheap. you’ll have to part with just a little over KES 150,000 to cop yourself a PhunkeeDuck (that’s like one of the leading brands). But, it’s a small price to pay considering how awesome this gadget is. Imagine cruising around in a scooter with no handlebars at 6mph (its faster than it sounds). The celebs are using it for fun but if unveilled to the public, PhunkeeDucks could change how people commute. They’ll be building special lanes for it.
Closer home, Diamond seems to have got one of his own too
By all means, this new scooter is a technological phenomenon. It brings sci-fi technology one step closer. Now, if you’ll excuse, I am going to get me one…in my dreams.
