Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has revealed its first collaboration with Ninebot and Segway, a self-balancing scooter called Ninebot Mini.

The Ninebot Mini resembles a Segway with its two-wheel design and follows Xiaomi's investment in Ninebot and Ninebot's subsequent acquisition of Segway.

Built from magnesium alloy that Xiaomi says is aerospace-grade, it can hit speeds of up to 16km/hour and can go 22km on a single charge. It is able to handle a 15-degree uphill incline and weighs less than 13kg.

It comes in white and black and is said to be tailored to fans of Xiaomi's Mi: it can actually be controlled by smartphone.

The Ninebot mini will be available in China priced at RMB 1999 -- or about 20,000. Not a bad deal at all.
