New 3D-printed electric scooter propels you underwater at 12 mphGet the Full StoryDiving into the ocean is as easy as... riding a scooter. Sounds absurd, but here we are.
Another underwater electric scooter made its debut in Germany on Saturday after a lightweight, handheld e-scooter made a splash at a water tank at the CES tech show. The Amazea e-scooter from German electronics company Jamade is modeled after dolphin anatomy and made from biodegradable materials.
Those materials are printed from a large-format 3D printer to make up the scooter's main body and some front parts, so about 75 percent is printed materials. The two 3.1 KW engines and lithium-ion battery are sadly not printable. But the power system lets the scooter reach up to 12 mph when submerged and nearly 19 mph when gliding on the water. The battery lasts up to an hour, depending how hard you drive it. Read more...More about 3d Printing, Underwater Diving, E Scooter, Tech, and Transportation
