Taking A Test Drive On Self-Balancing Scooters

You may have seen them rolling through your social media feeds with celebrities like Chris Brown and Justin Bieber on board. Self-balancing scooters are making a splash.

"It's a game changer," says Star Rader Chief Operating Officer of High Flyer Scooters. "It's transforming the way we can transport, mobilize, move around not just outdoors but indoors in the supermarket, pushing carts, down the street sidewalks walking your dog."

We tested out the High Flyer 1000.

"It has a 10-15 mile range, six hours of ride time and it takes about two hours to charge," says Cody Silberfein of High Flyer. "I've seen everyone from a 5yr old girl to a 75 yr old man on these."

How does it work? You simply step on and find your balance. It takes a few tries but once you get a feel for it, it actually moves WITH you.

"It requires a sense of balance and you have to figure out your sense of gravity," says Rader.

Even though it looks like a gadget for the lazy, Rader says you're forced to use your core muscles so it's actually a pretty good workout.

The High Flyer 1000 retails for $800. For more information go to HighFlyerScooters.com
