URB-E Fold-Up Electric Scooter Looks Fun And May Be Green But Is It Jubbling? [Video]

The URB-E Commuter Fold-Up Electric ScooterThe URB-E fold-up electric scooter is pitched by its creators as “The Ultimate ‘Last Mile’ Vehicle” because it fills that gap for commuters before and after mass transit. URB-E’s collapsible frame and portability (27 lbs) make it a great solution for toting on a crowded train or bus and it’s currently on funding site Indiegogo in an effort to raise $150,000.

The URB-E would definitely make users look forward to their commute and it’s being touted as a ‘green’ solution.

From URB-E.com:

“This is not only a more convenient and cost effective way to travel, but it is also a much greener approach to commuting.”

The URB-E fold-up electric scooter is a lot of things: portable, fun, electric, rechargeable and green but it’s not Jubbling. Why isn’t it Jubbling? Based on the videos and website info, it sounds like the URB-E was designed as an alternative to walking; it’s a portable Segway. Why do we need to replace walking with another appliance? [TC]

Dupé - Purveyors of fine bottled air.Brought to you by the purveyors of fine bottled breathing air – Dupé.***

Avoiding bottled water is easy – drink tap water. If you want to drink tap but you forgot your water bottle, drink water out of a sink with your hands. If you don’t have any hands, have somebody turn the water on for you and put your mouth on the spigot. I could go on but I think most people get it. Finding safe, drinkable tap water isn’t difficult.
