MILWAUKEE -- These three new people movers are changing the way we get around town.

The URB-E is a compact, all electric personal transportation device that is designed to transport you around town easily. Urban626, the company behind the URB-E, is based in Pasadena, CA and focuses on designing and developing products to meet growing consumer market needs. The URB-E was created as a 'last mile commuter', an easy way to get you from the bus stop or subway to your final destination. With a top speed of 15 miles per hour, the URB-E can travel 15 miles on a single charge. The URB-E starts at $1,500.

Swagway is the original manufacturer of the 'hands free smartboard'. It's sort of like a Segway, but without the handlebars. We've seen it become popular among celebrities, athletes, and teenagers lately. It takes a little while to find your balance, but once you do, the Swagway is a lot of fun. To operate it, just thing about what direction you want to travel. It also has a zero degree turning radius, so you can easily spin around in a circle. You can travel 20 miles on a single charge at a top speed of 10 miles per hour. The Swagway starts at $400.

The Boosted Board is an easy to ride electric skateboard. Boosted makes three different models ranging in power output. The board we tested features two brushless motors and can hit a top speed of 22 miles per hour. A wireless remote is used to control the speed and breaking while the rider controls the direction. The Boosted Board can travel around 7 miles on single charge and can take you up a 10% to 25% grade. Boosted Boards start at $1000.
