SCOOT

Speedy, fun, electric scooters you can ride anywhere in the city.

At first we had the white bike plan here in the Netherlands. Free bikes to transport across the country for everybody. But soon we will have SCOOT! Scooter in each city for free transportation. Scoot is a good solution for faster transportation then the bike, better then the car and cooler then the bus and perfect for the urban nomad. Unfortunately not yet developed for the Netherlands.

SCOOT is an organization that likes to have a network of green scooters instead of the white bikes, across America. The scooter would be the new transport for the people in the city. Especially for urban nomad people who don’t own a car or don’t like to be transported by public transport. For using the scooter you have to pay a monthly amount between  $ 100 and $ 150.

These scooter are easy to find with an app for the iPhone. And interestingly, the control also takes place with the iPhone. You put your iPhone in the special iPhone dock on the steering wheel, press start, and the scooter is good to go. Another benefit of the iPhone, he shows the map of the city so you can see right away where you are and where you have to be.

SCOOT is something they could use right away here in Amsterdam, where it is always busy and hard to find parking spaces. And of course it’s better for the environment if people take more often the bike or a green scooter from SCOOT instead of taking the dirty car with exhaust. And to come back at the urban nomad trend, how easy is this? They can use the scooter to bring them everywhere.

THE CHRISTALBUBBLE

The Urban Nomad trend is the trend I’m going to talk about this time. Urban Nomads are persons that works everywhere in the city and are continual on the road. They like things that are compact, practical light to carry around.

So I come with this great solution I’ve found on the internet. It’s a inflatable house, called The ChristalBubble. This balloon takes only 15 minutes to inflate. And the greatest part of all is there’s no planning permission required, so you can stay almost everywhere. Think about raining days on the beach or in the park.

It’s cool that these persons can use the house to work in, and still enjoy nature. Or they can take it for a little vacation trip and sleep everywhere on the most wonderful places on earth without going in your tent and see no nature at all.

This house is for sale for the price of  ‘only’ 7796 euro’s, perhaps it’s a little expensive for a piece of plastic, but it comes with a silent blowing turbine and wooden floor.
