Xiaomi China held the promised announcement, but innovation was not a smartphone or tablet, and Ninebot mini – Segway alternative movement development company, which is investing heavily Xiaomi. Ninebot shortly after passing under the wing of Xiaomi bought the original manufacturer of two-wheeled electric scooters Segway alternative movement, whose name has become a household name for such vehicles. Now we see the result of their joint work, although since the acquisition took place only six months.
What is the main feature of the Segway alternative movement from Xiaomi?
Ninebot mini is a classic electronic unicycle very similar to the original Segway alternative movement.
The principal difference from the development of a long-standing rejection of the steering arms – gadget is designed in such a way that the user’s hands remain free.
An important feature of Ninebot mini advocates its small size and weight – only 12.8 kg. The manufacturer points out that it can easily fit in any car, and transfer over short distances does not cause too much discomfort.
The vehicle Segway alternative movement allows you to move at speeds up to 16 km / h, as well as easily moving up if the slope of the land is 15 degrees. Is it “easy” it is expressed in the discharge rate of the battery and affect the speed, the company modestly. During normal operation, the novelty can travel 22 kilometers on a single charge – is able to get the number of 70-pound users who moved on a flat surface at a speed of 15 km / h.
Among new items to write your own application that displays the speedometer gives you access to settings, according to information on traffic congestion, allows technical diagnostics for troubleshooting and firmware update Ninebot mini.
The price Ninebot mini is not space, but it is a down to earth, if not lower – only 1999 yuan (about 315$ at the current exchange rate). Most Chinese counterparts are considerably more expensive than a product developed together with the creators of the original Segway alternative movement. Date of receipt of new items on the market is still in question.
