Stratasys EMEA, a subsidiary of Stratasys Ltd has announced that German start-up business, Floatility GmbH, has developed a first-of-its-kind, lightweight, solar-powered, electric scooter using both Stratasys PolyJet and FDM 3D printing technology. The ‘e-floater’ scooter houses an electric-motor and drives on three wheels, enabling users to stand upright and ride freely without physical exertion. As an ‘intelligent’ vehicle, the e-floater is also able to communicate to its owner in real time where it is located and the condition it is in. The novel production method has improved time and cost efficiencies.
