Tony Fadell releasing a smart go-kart for kids

Nest co-founder Tony Fadell recently unveiled Actev Motors, a company whose inaugural Arrow Smart-Kart promises to give kids a taste of what a smart car can provide.

The electric go-kart includes GPS and WiFi to keep drivers safe. Parents can use a mobile app to geofence the kart’s driving area, limit the top speed, or hit a stop button in an emergency. There’s also a proximity sensor to automatically prevent accidents.

Although the kart is aimed for five-to-nine-year-olds, it’s customizable and adjustable for older children. You can slap on different body styles, install a higher-capacity battery, or get a drift kit.

A starter kit costs $600 by pre-ordering, and it’ll normally cost $1,000 when it arrives in early summer.
