It's official: IO Walk is now Bollywood's new favourite tech toy

There's a new toy in town, and everyone's getting obsessed

Say hello to the new way to 'walk'. Iowalk is like a hybrid between a Segway and a skateboard, and is the new toy everyone's playing with. Varun Dhawan's got one, Alia Bhatt and Shahid Kapoor are messing around with one, and Arbaaz Khan has got one too. This self-balancing device uses slight directional pressure from your feet and takes you where you choose to go. With a speed of up to 10 kmph, it's perfect to go shopping with or even take your pet for a stroll. It works on a rechargeable battery that takes about 3 hours to fully charge and then lets you travel up to 20 km at a time. You can even customise it with your initials, or choose your own colour – white, red, blue, orange, yellow and black. Use it at home, take it to work or play around with it on the streets!

PS: We wouldn't be surprised if early adopter Sonakshi Sinha is seen with this next – after all she's the original Snapchat and Dubsmash queen.

Tech toys for the win! Tried @Official_IOWalk yet? #DeepikaPadukone and #RanbirKapoor give it a spin.
