    The Giz Wiz Show 1646 for October 27th 2017, Our 129th Independent Production. 

    We're well into our third year of Independent Production thanks to our wonderful Patreon supporters! If you'd like to support OMGchad & DickDe in our independent venture (we pay for everything ourselves, including travel) just click the Patreon link at the top of our show web page: http://www.gizwiz.tv/. You can also contribute just once via the PayPal link that's there too. And thank you for doing that! Our show wouldn't exist without our viewer's support, but a bit more support would be a big help.  

    This week we have three new gadgets from the Luxury Technology Show. This is a unique show where one can expect to find out-of-the-ordinary gadgets not found at any regular consumer trade shows. Many are high ticket items, but their uniqueness could be worth the price for high earners. This fun event took place on October 4th, 2017, at the Metropolitan Pavilion, NYC.

     

    Meet The Solo, an all electric car designed for just the solo driver.

     

    Electra Meccanica’s SOLO is an all-electric, single-passenger, commuter vehicle. It's not

    intended to replace the family car, but to supplement it for short distances and for chores like shopping. The company says approximately 80% of travel is done with a single passenger. So the SOLO is designed as a commuter vehicle to get you to and from work and around town as needed at minimal expense. With a range of approximately 100 miles between charges, SOLO is should easily fit the average commuters’ needs. One YouTube video says the car can go from 0 to 60 mph in 8 seconds. There's 220 & 110 Volt Charging / 3 hours at 220V and 6 hours using 110V. Features include 5 Year Battery Warranty, LCD Digital Instrument Cluster, AM/FM Stereo with Bluetooth/CD/USB, Rear View Backup Camera, Heated Seat and 2 Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty. It's priced at approximately $15,500 USD. It's built in Canada and available there this year, and should be available in the U.S. in 2018.
