As far as personal electronic transportation vehicles go, the electric Urb-E scooter provides the right balance between functionality and portability.

Able to fold up into an upright position, the Urb-E scooter allows the user to bring their scooter with them, regardless of where they might find themselves, be it on a subway or an elevator. The Urb-E scooter comes in a variety of dazzling colors, weighs 25 pounds and has a driving range of 20 miles per charge, with one charge lasting about three hours. If however, you're concerned about your scooter dying on you, it does have a phone dock that will act as a dashboard and display exactly how much battery life you have.

Ecological Mobility Solutions–the company behind the Urb-E scooter–hopes to launch a Kickstarter campaign in February at price of $1,000 to $1,500.
