In the last couple of years, new devices have been invented for transporting one person at a time. It used to be that the bicycle was the ultimate way to get around. And also skateboard and rollerblades. These new inventions are electricity powered instead of human power and go a lot faster with less effort.

The less effort part for these devices, while great for transporting over long distances, can also have a major negative effect as was "predicted" in the movie Wall-E
