Here's a look at what might replace it. It takes money and resources to develop products to showcase and eventually bring to market. My hunch is this is less a shot-in-the-dark and more a collective admission of where the market is headed. That depends on how early adopters fare and whether any can catch some sustainable buzz.
Bad-Ass Golf Carts - Entertainment - Thrillist Las Vegas
Harbour Island is a beautiful three-mile-long stretch of land in the Bahamas, home to incredible pink-sand beaches, the best fried chicken stands known to man, a nightclub run by a Bahamian guy called Hitler that I'm not even lying about, and luxury houses and boats that belong to rich foreign guys. You might know it as the place where Colton Harris-Moore, the "Barefoot Bandit," was caught in , after two years of stealing cars, boats, and planes ended with him crashing a Cessna into a swamp and being chased down by the FBI in a hail of bullets. Because the island is only three miles long, there's little point in owning a car, so everyone drives around in golf carts. It makes the island feel a bit like a country club if weed, rum, and dancehall played a more central role in aging rich men playing golf and talking about money.
