LeEco is trying to crowdfund an electric scooter

Troubled would-be Chinese tech empire LeEco is looking to launch another product, but it needs you to crowdfund it first. A Kickstarter for their electric powered standup scooter will go live on August 28th, if you’re willing to take the risk.

The foldable, lean-to-steer “Scooterboard,” as it’s known, will have a maximum speed of 15 MPH and have a range of 9.3 miles on a full charge. The device is a “post-development, fully functional electric rideable ” three-wheeled scooter, according to LeEco. The crowdfunding campaign will have a modest goal of $25,000, though there’s no information on pricing or tier rewards yet.

Crowdfunding is a safer option for LeEco after its rough year. The company’s ambitions overstretched its means, and its fall from grace resulted in its Chinese assets frozen and a lawsuit from Vizio over the two companies’ failed $2 billion deal. LeEco shuttered its US operations back in May, so a single-item Kickstarter is probably a much more feasible project to get new products into the American market.

The City of Tomorrow: The future of urban transportation is being built today


Innovation happens when people come together. Nowhere is that more obvious than in our bustling cities around the world. And as resident numbers continue to climb, some of the most populated locations across the globe are faced with the opportunity to not only shape the future — but to design it.

According to a 2014 United Nations report, 54 percent of the world's population resides in urban areas; by 2050 that number is expected to rise to 66 percent. That’s a lot of people.

An increase in population can lead to a whole slew of transportation issues — many of which you probably experience regularly. From congestion on the roads and inefficient traffic patterns to unreliable public transportation and rising commute times, city dwellers know how painful it can be when systems start to fail.
