Tech Tools: Razor Turbo Jetts
Amped-up ‘heel wheels’ allow users leave trails of sparks at speeds up to 10mph
Razor’s Turbo Jetts last for about 30 minutes’ use on a charge.
There may have been a moment a few weeks ago when managers of shopping centres around Ireland paused, trying to deal with the distinctly unsettling feeling that something, somewhere was wrong. A bit off. Like birds quietening down before a natural disaster strikes.
That may have been the moment that Razor unveiled its Turbo Jetts at CES 2018, the amped-up version of Heelys that are sure to be banned from use – or at least frowned upon – in most public spaces should they ever make it to market here. They’ve got a motor that can propel you at up to 10mph, which sounds like a recipe for disaster, and last for about 30 minutes on a single charge. They’re due to be launched next month. Come back Heelys, all is forgiven.
