About this project

People face that daily ritual—the commute. You get off the bus, rail line or finish parking only to have to walk that final distance to your home or office. Now imagine a smart solution that bridges the gap in that commute.

Introducing the Mogobike, the "last mile" solution built for people on the go.

Folds for Storage 

The Mogobike folds down for easy storage. Place it under your desk, in the trunk of your car or closet at home quickly and conveniently. 

Rugged Construction 

The Mogobike uses aircraft-grade aluminum for durability. In our testing we've ran it through potholes, over curbs, and rough terrain to ensure it can take a beating. 

Flexibility for Busy Lifestyles 

Stay mobile in interior spaces
Stay mobile in interior spaces

Fold the Mogobike down and use like a piece of roller luggage. For example, walk into your office, onto escalators, and through transit turnstiles with ease. 

Avoid the Gas Pump 

The Mogobike scooter offers a pennies-a-day solution for a rider's daily commute. Bring the Mogobike into your home or office and plug it into a standard wall outlet for recharging. 

Power Your Commute 

The Mogobike uses two 500 watt motors in the wheel hubs to both push and pull the rider over uneven terrain and assist in hill climbing.  We've experienced some good results so far in our testing and are trying out the scooter on the streets of San Francisco.

Device Friendly

WHERE WE ARE AT IN THE PROCESS:

We've gone through many iterations of the Mogobike over the past three years. The Mogobike used in our video is a real working prototype. We currently have a number of prototypes in-house for testing and show.

We anticipate going to production at the end of March 2015 with delivery to customers in June of 2015. Regular updates for progress and scheduling will be provided to our sponsors on a regular and timely basis.

ABOUT US:

Our headquarters are located in Las Vegas, Nevada and our engineering team has varied backgrounds in robotics, mobility, and the semiconductor industries.

For the Mogobike, we will perform final assembly, quality assurance testing and all customer support out of Vegas.

WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT:

While close to entering production, your contribution will help fund:

  • Production tooling
  • Component sourcing and ordering
  • FMVSS (U.S) and E-mark (EU) certification

Our Kickstarter campaign also allows us to gather feedback from the community on recommended changes not only for this production run but future production batches also.

Risks and challenges

Two issues pose a risk for any developer bringing a new product to market—scheduling and quality.

Currently we have sourced suppliers, and feel comfortable with the organizations we are using. Quality and scheduling begins at the source. Presently we are on track for a June 2015 delivery date. To ensure our sources can deliver materials we need in a timely manner, we closely monitor and are in constant contact with them.

Quality works in much the same way. Having our personnel actively evaluate and monitor the quality of materials and parts we manufacturer is a must. We want to create a quality product and will do everything possible to make it happen.

On both these issues, we will actively engage with our Kickstarter sponsors regarding any issues that might pose a problem with the delivery schedule.
