The future is here now, and here we are all using our own legs to walk and run here and there!
Smart Glider is the newest way of getting around town. Portable, intuitive, quick to charge and nippy, it is like riding a Segway without handlebars, or a skateboard with a motor. The Smart Glider is a personal transport device that willtake you from A to B and to C in many cases.
It is easy to master too. Simply hop on the touch-sensitive pads to start the motor and lean forwards or backwards to make it move. You’ll hit speeds of up to 10mph and it only needs one to two hours to fully charge.
The powerful 132W motor means you can tackle gradual hills with ease. And it is really portable too, weighing in at just 13kg.
How is it so easy to get to grips with? This is thanks to the Smart Glider’s very smart auto-stabilising technology. There are pressure pads built into the base, which understand how your weight is being distributed.
It feels your movement, which directs the Smart Glider in the direction you want to go. You simply lean left to go left and lean right to go right – easy!
The wheels are made from a thick durable rubber, which give a nice smooth ride and it is no slouch either – the Smart Glider can reach a speed of up to 16 kilometres an hour. So bring the dog for a walk, pop down to the shops, or take yourself to work in style.

Stealth Memory Pen
No, this pen does not help you with your memory if you are writing your biography! What it does do is hold any important data that you may need for work or study.
Simply load it up to the neatly hidden memory stick and bring your data including notes and files anywhere you want.
Of course, that is not all it does; it is a pen obviously, and with an omnidirectional tip, this is a great quality stylus for your tablet or smartphone!
The memory stick has 4GB memory, plenty of space to store your files on the go!
The Memory Pen is a really handy everyday carry gadget, with three useful functions, and is perfect for anyone doing study, someone who does a bit of travelling or in the office. A great gift for the techy who thinks they have everything.
