ABOUT THIS PROJECT
Tell us briefly about your project. Is it a work of art or does it serve another
The Zuumer is both a work of art and a functioning People mover, we call it a "PET" Personal Electric Transportation. It allows anyone that can stand and walk to be "Wild to mild" as they move from place to place.
When did you start working on this project and how long did it take you to complete?
We started 4 years ago working on the Technology, Testing, and Market feedback. We launched the Industrial Zuumer and will announce the Folding Consumer model at the end of November 2012
What was your goal in building this project?
We wanted to give the Human race an alternative to using a car for short trips. Our mandate was to make a platform that was uber cool and fun, but also the safest platform on the market. Cool Green Fun
Does your project help to solve a problem? If so what problem?
We know how important it is to cut the Carbon Footprint of every citizen of Our Planet. This is one way to cut down on all the tailpipe emissions and have fun doing it.
What makes your idea unique?
There is NO other platform out that holds traction in wet and dry conditions like the Zuumer can. It is the most Intuitive riding product in the World. Anyone can ride it and the sports minded person can shred it.
In what capacity are you using bearings and what type of bearings?
We use many bearings in our product, on our wheels, pivoting of the arms, twisting of our hanger. Mostly we use roller bearings small to big 14 in all.
