Designer Maya Prokhorova created the 'Tripod' scooter, which is a three-tiered transportation device. Unlike traditional scooters, this one does not use handles.

The Tripod scooter is a hybrid of a skateboard and a scooter. There are three balanced platforms to provide each user with a more secure and sturdy stage. This product can be used for personal transportation, or it can aid in transporting heavy objects.

The scooter contains a metal plate, which is coated in silicone rubber to make it weather-resistant and incredibly durable. Each of the three balls are made of a fluoroplastic material called Caprolon. Maya Prokhorova created this sleek device to bring comfort and control to each user. The ultimate goal is to promote safety while providing an environmentally friendly form of transportation. The scooters are created in a neutral color scheme of black, red and gray.
