This being San Francisco, where even a penny-farthing is an acceptable mode of transit to and from work, it's only a matter of time before we start seeing these pretty stupid-looking tiny folding electric bikes around town. CNET got a look at one at the Digital Experience show prior to CES 2016, dubbed the Urb-e, and they report that it is super light-weight, made mostly out of aluminum and carbon fiber, with much of its 35 pounds coming from the battery and motor. It goes a top speed of 15 miles per hour, and can go a maximum of 20 miles on a single charge, and is guaranteed to make you look like an overgrown pre-schooler at recess.
A Porsche designer is one of the people behind the Urb-e, Sven Etzelsberger, who is now co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Urban626, the company behind the bike/scooter. And if your walk from the train to the office is just too long, you can buy one now for $1,500 and become the biggest dork on the block.
CES 2016, the annual consumer electronics show, is happening now in Las Vegas, and Endgadget has just listed its favorite items from the show. One of those is a "soul time tracker" called the Conceptor Soul, a wearable that no joke helps you keep track of how much time you spend with your loved ones, and lets you know when you should be spending more.
