Although we do still see the occasional person tooling around on a Segway, let’s face it; it hasn’t quite become the revolution we thought it would be. Marcelo Fornaso, an inventor from Argentina, has created the TILTO, inspired by the concept behind the Segway.
The rigid platform and unforgiving wheels will be replaced with tilting mechanisms and no steering wheel or handlebars. It will accommodate one person and is completely electric, with a maximum speed of 12 mph and a range of just over 9 miles.
The TILTO, named from combining “tilt” and “go” is turned by leaning one way or the other, making it safer and easier to handle than a Segway. The vehicle will go in every direction, as well as stand stationary without toppling over.
