The "future of personal transport" might just be a scooter, if Daniel Huang, the former CEO of battery phone case maker Mophie, has his way.

Huang is now at the helm of Immotor, which just launched its first product -- an "intelligent," 3-wheel electric scooter that's powered by a smart battery with its own operating system. Launched on crowdfunding site Indiegogo, the Immotor Go has already raised more than $18,000 of its $45,000 goal, with a month left to go in the fundraising campaign.

You can secure the scooter on Indiegogo now for just $399. It's expected to ship in March 2017, at which point the price goes up to $749.

That's not exactly cheap, but for a scooter, this thing is pretty feature-rich: it boasts LED headlights, integrated GPS tracking and anti-theft technology, cruise control, digital accelerator and brake controls, a weatherproof Bluetooth speaker and swappable "super" batteries. It can go up to 20 miles on a charge and speed at up to 20mph.

"Immotor Go, with its unique portability, can be unfolded and folded seamlessly in seconds," the Indiegogo page reads. "Designed to be intelligent, the Immotor Go and its app allow you to mount and charge your phone, play your morning commute music playlist on the go through its built-in wireless speaker, track your scooter or trips, take selfies or record videos hands free and carry your heavy bags."

Once you get where you're going, you can remove one the batteries and use them to charge your laptop, or use an included adapter to turn one into a flashlight. Immotor promises that the battery is "safe by design," so this thing shouldn't cause any fires.
