Imagine a time when instead of walking, you have a pair of wheels right below your feet. Zooming around on those set of wheels right inside your college campus, you can be the one who will be two wheels up on every one of your peers.
The S Walker is one such contraption which has been launched recently in the China Pavilion in the IFA. Surrounded by a plethora of onlookers, the gadget has not ceased to amaze many. The S walker has been designed in Germany while it is produced in China. Complete with a handlebar mounted joystick, the little machine would have you swooning around in no time.
Priced at a whopping €2,500 (about $3,550), the S Walker has been designed to make people’s live a wee bit easier. This yet to be released prototype proposes to aid warehouse workers, couriers and college students while carrying out their day to day chores. How simplified your life would become if your feet will be automatic and that too without any extra efforts? Simply amazing!
The mechanism with which the S walker functions is fairly simple, easy to use and is very user friendly. All you need to do to control is, shift your weight around in the direction you want to steer the walker and it would turn that way. Having said this, the walker incorporates and assimilates the pressure points and moves accordingly. So, if you wish to go forward, just bend a little towards the front, or if you want to go backwards, just apply a little pressure from the back. Do be careful of not falling right off the walker while trying to apply the pressure in the pressure points.
The prototype moves at a speed of 10 km/hr for the demo, but the real product once launched would be able to cover a speed of 30 km/hr. Having said this, the main version is even equipped to cover a speed of 100 km/hr. Roll around, or simply zoom past those unwanted people on the S Walker. See how people’s eyes and mouth expand in amazement. Given the speed, even their thoughts would not be able to keep up with the S Walker.
