IOTAtrax takes home “Top Tech Award—Rideables” at CES
“The IotaTrax is far more compact and portable than any hoverboard you’ll find.” —Digital Trends PRE-ORDER NOW ($499 Until Feb 28th) One week before CES, we didn’t have any plans on attending. No booth, no media appointments, no preparation for the event whatsoever. In fact, our prototypes were still in production. Then a few days before the event we got word that we had three prototypes on the way. A couple long and tiring days later we were in Las Vegas.. And it couldn’t have gone much better. Early day 1, we were already making appointments for sneak peaks and early looks at Shane Chen’s latest creation. By the end of day 1, we had already met with Digital Trends, had an in-depth product review, were catching the eyes of everyone we passed and were reading an incredible review of the IOTAtrax. PRE-ORDER NOW ($499 Until Feb 28th) If you don’t already know, Shane Chen, the inventor of the IOTAtrax, was also the inventor of the original hoverboard (Hovertrax). Not the low-quality copy cats that never seem to go away, but the first one. He’s also the original inventor of the Solowheel. Now he’s back for round 3 with his latest innovation and the next step in rideables—the IOTAtrax. Shane took what he learned from the Hovertrax and Solowheel to arrive at what he feels is the perfect balance in rideables—something that is not only super easy to maneuver on, but also comfortable to cruise along on at higher speeds for long distances. Its also super compact and light, which makes it easy to take it with you when you’re not riding. And because its so compact and low to the ground, it’s a cinch to learn. CES was our official launch and we’re so excited we were able to make it happen. We’re currently taking pre-orders at IOTAtrax.com until February 28th, when the we will start shipping. Retail is $599, but all pre-orders will only cost you $499. Happy Riding 😊 Read the awards show article here PRE-ORDER NOW ($499 Until Feb 28th) PRE-ORDER NOW ($499 Until Feb 28th)

Unicycles and Lunicycles
We recently visited with the Lake Oswego Unicycle club that meets at Lakeridge Jr. High School to introduce them to the Lunicycle. Everyone was eager to get on and start riding the Lunicycles, including the club director and a couple parent volunteers. Before they started, we explained the subtle differences between riding a traditional unicycle and riding the Lunicycle; that they need to lean forward on the Lunicycle as opposed to leaning back on a unicycle, they need to bend their knees and keep low on the Lunicycle, they need to squeeze against the leg supports while riding the Lunicycle, and when they want to turn they need to twist at their knees as opposed to twisting at their waist. Once the kids were able to get on the Lunicycles they all were riding like pros within a few short minutes. At the end of the club time the kids were asked, compared to when they learned to ride the unicycle, which was easier to learn and they all said the Lunicycle! We are excited to follow up with the club in a few weeks to see how they’ve enjoyed the Lunicycle and to see how they’ve improved!

What’s In Your Toy Box?
This past summer we had the opportunity to take part in the second season of ABC’s The Toy Box , a Shark Tank type show where kids are the judges.   We had a great time participating in the show and our experience was similar to that of other national television shows that have featured our products. We decided to send Ywanne, Shane’s daughter, to Los Angeles to represent Inventist and to introduce the world to hers and Shane’s favorite invention, the Orbitwheel. It was a whirlwind of a trip for Ywanne, spending most of her time either behind the scenes or on set. “It was a fun and great experience and I’m grateful for the opportunity to appear on the show, and to compete with a group of such talented and creative inventors.” The Orbitwheel segment aired on Sunday, November 5. If you haven’t watched it already, check out the video below to see how the Orbitwheel did!
