"The scooters are made of aluminum and plastic for durability and
look a lot like the Razor scooters that were so popular a few years
ago. They draw power from recharge stations affixed to light posts --
brilliant, because light posts already draw power from the city' s grid.
Riders select a scooter and ride to their destination, where they hook
it up to another hub to recharge.
A computer interface in each charging station would offer
instructions for using the scooter, and signing up for the program
would get you a free bike helmet so you protect your noggin and comply
with any local laws."
