So apparently, one of the most recent cool gadgets was unveiled at the Portland International Auto Show that Daniel attended. He did mention it the night he got home, but I think I was falling asleep having had a tough evening with Ethan who was screaming his cute little head off. Anyway, it’s called a Boxx and it’s said to be up there with the kind of cool stuff the late Steve Jobs used to produce. So Daniel’s super-excited of course because anything associated with Jobs or Apple makes him salivate.
The question I asked him yesterday (when I was a bit more awake) was in what way is it so Apple-oriented? He said it looks a bit like a huge iMac that’s standing up but is fitted with a seat, wheels and handlebars.
But as we all know, it couldn’t have been Jobs who designed it. So who is the man (or woman) behind the Boxx? A guy called Eric Vaughn – from Portland – designed this cool moped. I was quite proud he was from Portland; I do take such pride in my city. Daniel thinks it mainly looks like a suitcase…and of course, he wants one. Actually it’s his birthday in a few months’ but with a $3,995 price tag, I don’t think our budget can stretch that far… still, it’s nice to dream!
Here’s to a happy Monday!
