Ninebot is the first in the world self balancing personal transportation vehicle. Although this sounds unbelievable, everything becomes clear when you see this incredible machine in motion. It is unlike a car or a motorbike, it has two wheels and is able to balance itself and prevent the rider from tipping over.
Riding Ninebot is dead simple and learning how to use it takes only a few minutes. And this is how you do it.
Step on the riding platform, stand with your body straight up and Ninebot will remain stationary keeping you in a vertical position. If you lean forward or backwards slightly, Ninebot will move forward or back respectively. The speed is controlled by how much your body leans away from a vertical position – the more you lean the faster you go. To stop, all you need to do is to return to upright (vertical position of your body) and if you are going faster then lean back slightly.
Ninebot can go as fast 20 kilometers per hour for fast and dynamic ride. If you prefer to go slower, swiftly moving around pedestrians or obstacles, Ninebot can do this too.
To turn left or right, turn the right handlebar forward or backward.
Riding Ninebot is easy and safe. The technology used to create self balancing system in the Ninebots is similar to how a human body works to balance itself. For example, if you lean forward, the fluid in your inner ear shifts and your brain knows that you are out of balance.
To restore the balance, your brain will trigger you to put your leg forward to prevent you from tipping over.
Ninebot uses the same principle but instead of legs, it has two wheels that are powered by two independent from one another motors. It also involves a system of sophisticated tilt sensors that work like a fluid in your inner ear and built in microprocessors collecting information on the position of Eco-Segway 100 times a second just like a brain.
