If you’re not a hermit, you’ve probably noticed the popularity of cars in our modern society. Although cars are efficient and functional, they lack many additional qualities that other vehicles possess. Because of this, I have compiled some of my favorite underappreciated modes of transportation.
Heelys make shoes that are not only fashionable, but functional too. These special shoes have a removable wheel embedded in the sole which allows the wearer to walk, run, and roll. With these bad boys, one can smoothly transition from a stroll to a majestic roll that makes any person look like a levitating genius. Heelys also creates catchy, unisex designs that are the pinnacle of fashion. At the low price of $55 on Amazon, Heelys are an affordable and practical choice for transportation.
Patented in 1919, the Pogo stick uses springs to allow the rider to bounce up and down effortlessly. The Pogo stick is not only faster than walking, but it is lots of fun! The jumpy action makes anyone feel like they’re flying. The Pogo stick is also a great workout. The riding experience is equivalent to doing multiple squats but it does not give the riders the pain and suffering that comes from an actual workout.
Although this one may seem obvious, the bike is the backbone of affordable transportation across the globe. In any populated city, bikes are usually the preferred mode of transportation. Bikes are efficient, does not require any gas, and is much more affordable than a car.
The Segway One S1 One Wheel Self Balancing Personal Transporter with Mobile App Control” is a hands free, one-wheeled, electric unicycle. This high-tech transporter is offered on Amazon for only $599.99. For those looking for a futuristic and eye-grabbing device, this advanced Segway easily does the trick.
