My idea will allow the use of a electric Go-kart for the sidewalk. Compact and electric with a system that better helps those with motor skill troubles.

Reduses car use by giving an alternative. Increases health, and would be used as a system to help those with trouble walking, disabled, and elderly.

Describe who will use your solution (1,000 characters)

Children 12+ years of age, young adults, middle aged, even those 80+ in age. Those needing additional physical therapy options, an cancer patients, and survivers. And any other person(s) that would observe and respect the law. And comply fully with 'Bicycle safety', and usage of them. An with low power modernized vehicles, like the following examples: motorized wheelchair, motorized scooter, etc. All limited to comply with speed regulations for each individual state.

Describe your solution's stage of development

  • Initial Design - you are still exploring the idea and have not tested it with users

Tell us about your team or organization (500 characters)

I still need help for large scale production. But if Ford where to partner for example. We could have the machines on the road today.

Size of your team or organization

  • I am submitting as an individual

Funding Request

  • $100,000

Describe how you would pilot your idea (1000 characters)

As a continuous way to have money for it they could be on a go-kart share holder until rented. Or could be brought to the person for an extra $1.

Describe how you would measure the success of your pilot (1000 characters)

How many rentals each week for a month. Was it fun? Did you feel healthier after it's use? Compared to their usual day how much difference did it make? Would you use it again? Or would you buy if they where for sale?
