A safer Berlin

So, I’ve been thinking a lot about moving back to Berlin. I think that it’s amazing place and I think I should give it another shot. I never really gave it a fair shake, and to be honest I was very intimidated by the city. What are the things I didn’t like was that I couldn’t get a fair perspective of the city itself. I felt that I didn’t want to buy a vehicle while I was there, cuz it might have been temporary, and I also don’t like exploring a new city through a car. I find it Sheltering. And I don’t want to pollute. But, I found that it was such a big an overwhelming City to try and Reverse by bike or public transit. I felt like there was so much I was missing out on. And it intimidated me. And it kept me from feeling like that city was my home. Although I admired it greatly and still do. Recently, I heard about this new product. It’s this awesome electric motor scooter made by UNU. UNU  has created and amazing business model that is basically a complete inverse of what you would expect from something in the automotive industry. Basically, they only make you a scooter when you order it. It’s not in production before that, it goes into production when you get the order. It’s electric and it doesn’t use any fossil fuels to operate at all. It just uses a battery, which is ingeniously designed with a collaboration with Panasonic, and that battery can go for 50 kilometers at a time even though it weighs only 9 kilograms. Once that battery gets low, you can bring it inside and plug it into any wall outlet. It only takes 5 hours to charge from being completely empty, and then you can drive for another 3 or so days, or however long it takes you to hit 50 kilometers in the city, which is not a small distance when were talking about cities. This is why I’m so interested in UNU in the scooter, and this is one of the things I think I’ll do if I move back to Berlin.
