The world's first pedal-powered scooter, manufactured by Pumgo, is the perfect hybrid between bicycles and scooters.

More efficient than a scooter and more compact than a bicycle, these vehicles share much of the same riding qualities as a Segway, except that a Pumgo scooter is manually driven.

The price tag on these Pumgo scooters are $299 USD.

Implications - Inventions such as this are remarkable because they enhance their consumer appeal by being functionally useful while also suggesting an additional quality of fun and excitement. Any urban consumer who feels frustrated by the confines of city commuting would definitely find a convenient, compact, eco friendly and adventurous form of transportation very appealing.
