Company Wants Electric Pogo Sticks In San Francisco: What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

The spirit of entrepreneurship is strong with these folks

Electric pogo sticks could be coming soon to San Francisco

Forget electric scooters and electric bikes – people in San Francisco could soon be “jumping into the future” with electric pogo sticks!

That’s right – San Francisco could be the first city in the U.S. to get them, never mind the hills.

The e-pogo sticks are the brainchild of Swedish startup Cangoroo, which is “challenging e-scooter sharing companies with a new type of vehicle for urban environments.”

According to Cangoroo’s mission statement, its goal is to partner with cities, schools, and communities to offer “an alternative, joyful way of getting to wherever life takes you,” with the company saying it’s all about fitness, health and fun – not just commuting.

The app-based pogo stick service give its jumpers not only an alternative mode of transportation, but jumpers would also be able to track how many jumps they make in an effort to track fitness, too, according to the Malmö , Sweden-based company.

They do understand San Francisco is rather hilly, right? But, hey, as one person pointed out, they could put spikes on them to help pick up the trash. Another noted that you don’t use pogo sticks to get places fast. Then there will be all the drunks trying to rent them. And, oh yeah, this

Remember, San Fran has such a problem with feces all over the place that someone actually came up with a poop map. Jump, jump, jump, goink. Or, hey, it could be all the used drug needles littering the city.
