The two-wheeled vehicle was created by a team of researchers from the Institute for Systems and Robotics at the University of Coimbra. Ana Vaz, project leader, said the scooter can be customized for differing preferences and levels of affordability. It has a range of 60 to 86 miles.

Depending on consumer interest, the scooter could be on the market before the end of the year.
