It is kind of egg-shaped, and it's certainly small. The big question is why the brand is called "Camper", since their products have nothing to do with camping vehicles or equipment... Camper is a shoe company! My guess is that there is no connection between the English word "camper" and this Spanish name.

Two-wheeled two-track vehicles like this have been proposed for a long time, often with some sort of gyroscope suggested to fix the obvious problem of staying upright. They make interesting design challenges, but I have yet to see a useful application. Two-wheeled trailers, of course, work because they are supported at the hitch.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

What makes you think it's a Boler concept? Looks like a macro, all-weather ripoff of the Segway.

Bound to happen sooner or later.
