The Steeple Times shares “wit and wisdom.” What’s your guiding force?

Passion.

“Don’t get even, get medieval” is, in our humble opinion, a great motto. What’s yours?

Just do it! (Thanks Nike).

 

Kerry Katona was considered unacceptable in 2007. Who or what is unacceptable in 2018?

SUVs.

 

Tony Blair misses being Prime Minister. What do you miss most in your life?

Having the curiosity of a child.

 

What might you swap all your wealth for?

My family’s health.

 

Donald Trump was once a case of: “If you owe the bank a thousand, they close you down; but if you owe the bank a billion, you own the bank.” What’s your view on the state of the financial system?

It’s as fucked up as the Donald himself.

 

What phrase or word do you most loathe?

‘Trivial’ as in German nobody uses it and most people don’t understand it. I loathe ‘trivial’ for being a ‘non-trivial’ word to describe something ‘trivial.’

 

In the UK, some people consider charity to “begin at home.” What’s your view and what causes do you personally support?

I support mainly environmental causes. It is not that I think that humans deserve it less, I just think sending money to developing countries won’t solve the problem and is just an easy fix for many people to feel good about themselves.

 

The judge in Law Abiding Citizen states: “I can pretty much do whatever I want” before being blown up whilst answering her mobile phone. What’s your view on the appropriate use of such devices?

Try to use it less, fail miserably in doing so and then tell yourself you’re gonna do better next year.

 

If you could fill a carriage on The Orient Express, who would be your fellow passengers?

My family and Barack Obama and Steve Jobs and Nelson Mandela if they were still alive.

 

Microlino co-founder Oliver Ouboter – What’s on your mantelpiece? A 20-question interview with Oliver Ouboter; the co-founder of the imminently launching innovative Swiss ‘bubble car’ – the Microlino.

If you were unfortunate enough to end up on death row, what would be your last meal and where would you eat it?

A special home-made roast.

 

What time is it acceptable to consume the first drink of the day?

It depends on the situation.

 

A Negroni, a martini or a cup of tea?

A Negroni of course.

 

Whose parties do you enjoy the most and why?

Parties of friends that I don’t spend too much time with. There are always new people to get to know.

 

Who is the most positive person you know?

My dad.

 

What’s your most guilty pleasure?

Chocolate of course. I’m Swiss.

 

If a tattoo were to sum you up, what would it be of?

It would be a Kickscooter, of course.

 

If you were a car, what marque would you be?

What a question: I’d be a Microlino!

 

Cilla Black presented Surprise, Surprise. Tell us the most surprising thing about you.

I cannot operate a washing machine but that’s not surprising though.

 

What’s currently sitting on your mantelpiece?

Big companies and governments. They are slow and inefficient in dealing with global warming.

 

Oliver Ouboter is the co-founder of a start-up alongside his father and brother that has developed a small electric city-car named Microlino. He is considered one of the best guinea pigs as his dad invented the world-famous Kickscooter in 1999.

  1. I watched a video on the Microlino. It is plainly a great idea. I would like to get one when they’re available in London. Any idea on dates Oliver?
