Do you still remember spnKiX? We actually featured the motorized shoes in December last year, back when it was merely a project on Kickstarer. Well, if you’ve added spnKiX to your list of must-haves this year, good news because you can now get the cool motorized shoes for $699. It’s quite expensive, but hey, isn’t it cool to actually have one of these? spnKiX is equipped with an 85 W wheel motor that is powered by a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery located at the back of the device.
The designers claim that it will take up to 5 hours to recharge the battery. Once fully charged, spnKiX can run up to 6 miles or around 9.6 kilometers. Speed is controlled using a handheld wireless remote that has a variable speed controller on it. It’s literally the smallest electric vehicle we’ve seen so far. So, if you’re interested, you can pre-order spnKiX via its official website. Cheers!
