領獎臺

金牌: Solowheel Orbit 和 Solowheel Extreme 贏了在三個部類不過它們也是最貴的。

銀牌: Firewheel 和 Rockwheel 表現也不錯 因為贏了在兩個部類。 (Hovertrax 贏了兩個輸了四個 - 要看那一些因素比較重要。)

銅牌: 你覺得呢?(可能是 Freeman A4。)

最近非常受歡迎的自平衡單輪車是 Gotway。 未來的對比表更新版會包括 Gotway。

Winners Podium   

Gold medal: Solowheel Orbit and Solowheel Extreme each are the winners in three categories, but they are also the most expensive.

Silver medal: Firewheel and Rockwheel also do quite well with each one winning in two categories. Hovertrax wins two categories as well but loses in four – just depends which categories are more important for you.

Bronze medal: What do you reckon? (Perhaps Freeman A4)

Update: Recently a very promising and popular eWheel has been the Gotway which will certainly appear in the next edition of this table.

建議 

我自己覺得兩輪自平衡車很好。它們更容易學所以我買了Hovertrax – 好玩, 品質也很好, 可是高速不穩定而且不適合不平衡的地。

如果經濟情況許可而且你重視專利那就可以買Inventist的車,因為他們有原來的專利。

Author’s advice

Personally I like the electric foot scooters because they’re easier to learn (apparently) so I bought Hovertrax which is great fun and very well built although it lacks stability at speed and only works well on smooth surfaces. If you have enough money and you value patent ethics you might wish to buy from Inventist seeing as they hold the patents.

兩輪自平衡車

輕便交通工具的對比表 (包括 Solowheel 與 Hovertrax)  Transportables:comparison chart of lightweight portable transport tools including the Solowheel & Hovertrax

沒有車子的路很好走:如果我們選一些路開放給輕便交通工具會怎樣?     Green Lanes: car-free streets open to eWheels, bikes, and other forms of LPT (lightweight portable transport)  

新的英文的稱號 New terminology

最新發明很好不過我覺得有一些英文的稱號不好聽,因此我想提出來一些新的稱號看一看是不是好一點。

The new inventions are great, but our names for them are not. Here are some suggested names:

Electric wheel or eWheel 自平衡單輪車
Electric Foot Scooter 兩輪自平衡車
LPT (Lightweight Portable/Personal Transport)
可提的交通
Transportable 可提的交通工具

綠色通道提案: 沒有車子的路很好走

沒有車子的路很好走

輕便交通工具越來越受歡迎。地球的溫度越來越高。
方法:選一些適合的路開放給自行車與別的輕便交通工具。汽車禁行。
首先可以在週末實行,如果結果好可以整個禮拜這養做。

非常容易, 便宜, 有效, 而且完全可以反轉。 這些圖片描畫台北可是這個方法可以用在別的城市。

那當地居民怎麼停車呢?
方法很多。可以提供給他們免費停車場、補償費、 或特殊訪問許可證。他們可用電子ID自動打開欄柵或關口。他們要慢速得開車用旁邊的車道。

如果我們這樣做旁邊的路會不會變得更混亂?
開始實行這個規劃的時候附近的路也許會有更多車子,可是很可能自行車、其他環保交通工具、與行人都會減少因為他們能用綠道。 而且等一段時間很多司機會多使用輕便環保交通工具或走路,所以整個城市的車很可能會減少。

那請問,緊急服務車和送貨車怎麼辦?
這類的車能有特殊訪問。欄柵或關口的話它們可用電子ID自動打開。送貨車要慢行用旁邊的車道。極有可能小型輕便的送貨車會出現。

我不相信我們能實現這個規劃。空中樓閣。
“People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.” (George Bernard Shaw)
(說’不可能’的人不應該打擾正在做的人) (George Bernard Shaw)

這種規劃已經有做過在很多地方。 請看這裡這裡。唯一差別就是路是給輕便交通工具而不是全部給行人。科技發展的很快、交通工具越來越輕便、小、安全、有效率、而且城市的密度會越來越高, 所以這種或同樣的規劃是必要的。 重点是我们要做得好。

Self-Balancing Electric Wheels & Foot Scooters

New terminology suggested by the Peacemaker Foundation

The new inventions are great, but our names for them are not. Here are some suggested names:

Electric wheel or eWheel (electric self balancing “unicycle” such as the Solowheel)
Electric Foot Scooter (Self-balancing Dual Motor Electric Foot Scooter such as Hovertrax)
LPT
 (Lightweight Portable/Personal Transport: transport involving devices that can be easily carried)
Transportable (Portable transport tool)

If you can think of better names then please comment or get in touch.

Author’s opinion

Personally I like the electric foot scooters because they’re easier to learn (apparently) so I bought Hovertrax which is great fun and very well built although it lacks stability at speed and only works well on smooth surfaces. If you have enough money and you value patent ethics you might wish to buy from Inventist seeing as they hold the patents. Furthermore, as of January 2015 the Solowheels generally gets the best reviews, such as on Amazon.
