This is very easy to do though, and controlling it is easy too. The most difficult part for most people will be starting and stopping it. But once you get used to how it works, it will just be like riding a bike.

So now you are balancing on the board, you just have to start leaning forward and it will start moving, the faster you want to go the more you lean forward. The board are controlled by a sensor that is under each foot pad, this detects the micro-movements of your feet which are sent straight to the motors.

Just point your toes down to go forward, and put your weight into your heels to go backwards. Braking is as easy as leaning backward. The board is just moved around by literally tilting and leaning your body which are picked up by the sensors that are built into both foot panels.

To turn left and right, you will just need to lean in the direction you want to go, easy peasy. The smart scooter obviously runs much better and faster (top speed around 10 kilometres per hour or 6.2 mph), but once outside on hills and bumps you will notice a slowing down, and a possibly unbalancing so take care.driving-smart-scooter
