It was developed by Alessandro Russo and Vinícius Sanctus, two huge Harry Potter fans from Sao Paulo, Brazil. They both believe the magical mode of transport will be useful for day-to-day urban living as they develop more. The two of them can be spotted zipping down city streets as their usual mode of transport.

The broomstick is powered by a motorized wheel, and can reach 37 miles per hour, and changes direction when the rider leans from one side to another.

The creators have a plan to market and sell the broomsticks. It has a price tag of around $740.

Once they have enough of the broomstick scooters, the duo hopes to play a game of Quidditch, which is a special sport in the "Harry Potter" series.
