Gocars - smart cars popular in Barcelona, Lisbon, Miami, San Fransisco
Imagine the banana-yellow 49cc love-child of Herbie (the Love Bug), children's TV favourite Brum, and a golf buggy; add a dash of élan, and you have a GoCar : the world's first computer-guided storytelling car. Following great success in San Diego, San Francisco and Miami (Time Magazine called it "the coolest invention of the year"), they can now be found in Valencia, Barcelona and Lisbon. Each car seats two people (minimum driving age is 21) and reaches 60 kmph (35 mph). All have GPS routes for you to follow; it's also perfectly OK to go "off-piste". Prices are a very reasonable 35€ (per car) for the first hour, 20€ to 25€ for subsequent hours, or 99€ for the day, including fuel and insurance.
The Segway looks like a sawn-off scooter on oversized wheels. Created in 2001 by maverick American inventor Dean Kamen (said to be the Willy Wonka of the mobility world), this nippy device is perfect for exploring foreign streets whilst avoiding sore feet. Grasping the basics takes around 10 minutes, but, unless seriously uncoordinated, staying upright isn't too tricky. The controls are simple: lean forward to go forward, back to go back, and twist the steering grip to go right or left.
