After releasing the ArcaBoard, the world’s first commercially available hoverboard, ARCA Space corporation is announcing the ArcaMini; Made for everyone to enjoy as their own personal portable transportation device.
ARCA Space Corporation makes it possible to safely ride a high quality vehicle that can also be used in remote mode, making it the ultimate entertainment and utility device.
Compared with an electric skateboard, the ArcaMini uses four unarticulated wheels that make balance training unnecessary.
ArcaMini, measuring only 40cm on its largest dimension, is able to fit in a backpack. The design is unique allowing for use as a personal transportation vehicle as well as an entertainment and utility vehicle in remote mode. The range while in remote mode is 150m (492ft) allowing for the transportation of various items such as video cameras and luggage.
Being entirely made of aluminum and steel alloys, the ArcaMini has a design that was inspired by aerospace rovers used for planetary exploration.
The ArcaMini performances are above most of the current similar vehicles. It has 40x30x9cm (15.75×11.81×3.54”) and a weight of 7.8kg (17.2lbs). It has two electric motors, totaling over 3000W, that are powered by a 10,000mAh battery. The maximum rider, or payload, weight is 110kg (243lbs). These characteristics allow the ArcaMini to achieve good performances at an autonomy of around 60min, a range of 20km (12.5mi) and a limited speed of 20km/h (12.5mph).
