This new product has been described as ‘eco-friendly’ and a ‘new concept that combines portability with mobility’. The backpack features a built-in electronic skateboard which has the power to transport a passenger and contents at speeds of up to 15 miles per hour.
It can be used as a backpack, rolling suitcase or transporter and also conveniently has the capability to charge smartphones and other electronic devices.
Carrying a folding bicycle and a bag on the commute can be cumbersome and not all that comfortable.
That’s why a team of Brazil-based developers has created Movpak, an electric skateboard that fits neatly into its own backpack.
All users have to do is pull a handle to release the board, which they can either ride or pull along the ground like a roller bag.
Movpak will unlock a new color backpack with every $100,000 raised! Help to make a more colorful world by supporting Movpak today.

MovPak is the best solution for the urban commuter. It can carry everything you need, doubling as a personal electric vehicle capable of speeds up to 20 mph, and a range of 10 miles per charge.
Large cities can’t support cars anymore. This problem is only getting worse as the population continues to increase. The only way to solve that problem is to integrate public transportation with personal light electric vehicles.
It’s designed to be the best companion for the urban commuter. Movpak will help the commuter to travel faster because it solves the first and last mile problem of having to walk to or from public transport. Unlike most foldable bikes, it is easy to fold and unfold. And if you run out of battery for your phone, you can charge it with Movpak up to 10 times.
Not at all. I’m not a skateboarder myself. Learning to ride a Movpak is actually much easier than all these board sports. First, because it has a motor with brakes, the Movpak doesn’t slide from under you when you get on. Second, you can press your foot and calf against the rear part of the backpack. This will give you extra support and stability. You can use your calf to make turns by just leaning forwards and backward.
It’s aimed at commuters who use public transportation or those who live up to five miles away from work. It’s also great for college students who need to run around a big campus and still be on time for class.
If you compare it to a regular backpack, then yes—it weighs 7.7 kg [17 pounds].
Definitely! Just push the remote trigger backward, and it will start braking. In fact, the brakes are regenerative, which means that you will be recharging your battery every time you brake.
