With soaring gas prices and increasing environmental concerns, it wasn't long before someone created a solar-powered scooter as the perfect alternative. Treehugger reports on the Solarin Turtle that can travel at a speed of 55 mph, and comes with a helmet fitted with hands-free technology.
So not only is this scooter good for the environment and your pocket, but it's also fitted with techie goodness. Although we're ready to see this type of transportation options in the market right now, Malaysians and the rest of the world will have to wait until May of next year.
Several countries including Europe, United States, Japan and China have already expressed great interest in the scooter, and the company views these demands as an encouraging sign. According to the article, the price may be around RM 3,000 ($820).
OK. This is what I want for Father's Day.
