Movpak – A Backpack and Electric Skateboard in One

Another great project in Kickstarter. The Movpak  is a backpack electric skateboard -hybrid backpack and an electric skateboard.

Last year, we featured a sleek foldable electric scooter – Stigo , an e-scooter which neatly folds into a stroller like . And early this year, remember the cool Backpack Kickscooter? Movpak is very similar in concept, except that it packs an electric motor that’s let you ride it without sweating.

Movpak is designed for students, for campus transport, and for commuters to tackle short travel or the “last mile” problem.

It can function as a regular backpack. But you will need to consider the thing to pack, because the Movpak alone already weights  7.7 kg (17 lbs). Sounds heavy for a backpacking trip. But it can actually come handy as it allow charging for your mobile devices as well.

Wondering how it runs? – It’s electric motors can be controlled using a wireless hand held remote. It’ll probably take some to get used to, even for the experienced skateboarder.

Want one? Well, they have 29 days left on their KickStarter campaign. I would love to get one, except that the cheapest pledge to get one is $999 USD (and this is already gone). So you’ll now need at least $1,190 USD to get one.

So still want one? – If you do get one,  please let me borrow 🙂
