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]

“You Don’t Need Us To Tell You That Gas Prices Are Back On The Rise.”

Gas prices on the rise - The Conan O'Brien ShowHere’s a funny video from The Conan O’Brien Show of newscasters repeating the same line about rising gas prices. The clip originally aired in February 2013 and in each case, “You don’t need us to tell you that gas prices are back on the rise” was played off as bad news. At Jubbling, that same repeated line is stated a little differently: “You don’t need to tell us that. Gas prices are on the RISE!” (Drive less.) [CDCW]
