Could self-balancing scooters be used to roam around museums?

scooter-museumsMore and more private spaces and public operations are looking to take advantage of the absolute explosion in self balancing scooter technology, giving their customers every opportunity to leverage this advanced tech to sip around their property.

And while there have been major leaps forward (not only in design, but also in convenience and utilities) for self balancing scooters in places like airports where the use of them is absolutely ideal, other places have been slower to adapt them – and it’s easy to understand why.

Any time you’re talking about a new advanced technology looking to weasel its way into the public conscious you’re going to meet resistance, and people are always going to be looking for the results from early adopters before they follow those pioneers.

If you’ve been wondering whether or not self balancing scooters can be used to roam around museums without any headache or hassle, here are a couple of answers that you’ll appreciate!

Most museums have perfectly smooth floors – ideal for self balancing scooter operation

The overwhelming majority of self balancing scooter options out there today need to take advantage of terrain that is as smooth as it gets and is free from debris as possible.

There just aren’t all that many “off-road” self balancing scooter options on the market (yet, anyway).

This is part of what makes museums so attractive for those that use self balancing scooters on a routine basis. The floors are almost always perfectly flat, just as smooth as can be, and kept very, very clean for obvious reasons. You’ll be hard-pressed to find better cruising conditions than these.

Most museums have tremendously wide corridors – ideal for self balancing scooter operation

You are also going to want to make sure that you have plenty of room for self balancing scooter operators to zip around this way and that, in that requires some pretty large interior spaces.

Most museums have tremendously wide and open rooms and corridor, with plenty of space for self balancing scooter operators to maneuver, to cruise, and to effortlessly pass one another.

On the flipside, you might not want people to be zipping around near delicate art installations, statues, or paintings

At the same time, people that own museums or prices art collections might not be all that excited about the idea of dozens (or even hundreds) of people flying around these installations on top of technology that they might not be completely comfortable controlling.

It may be a while until we see self balancing scooters rolled out and most museums, but the chances are that it’s going to happen sooner rather than later.
