Scooters are the future?

Per The Verge:

Bird says its Bird One scooters will have a 473Wh battery, which VanderZanden says is twice the battery power as other e-scooters. That gives each scooter a range of up to 30 miles on a single charge. Other upgrades include GPS-enabled anti-theft device, 9-inch semi-solid pneumatic tires, and a digital lock that can be locked and unlocked from Bird’s smartphone app.

An interesting look into the future of mobility.

Really go after micro mobility generally, [and] to try to help people get out of cars and onto short-range electric vehicles like Bird One.

And I love this:

If the scooter is stolen, Bird’s “bird hunter” network of freelancers may be able to track it down and find it.
