Engadget has a link to Mark Schutte’s dog powered scooter. This catches my eye because my friend Joe is always looking for ways to exercise his sled dogs in the summer. The developer, of course, is very serious about its befits and usefulness of this contraption. Here’s the sales pitch:
Focus your dogs energy and enjoy the new sport of Urban Dog Mushing.
Engadget has some complaints, but this looks like the best solution I’ve seen yet for running sled dogs in the summer.
Mark accepts payment for the $500 scooter by check and PayPal, and will customize the scooter for a particular dog or to run two dogs (one on each side) at a time.
