Walk Car is by far the coolest way of getting around the city and the best part about it is that it can fit into a regular bag and you don’t even have to worry about parking.
Since segways are a little hard to digest for the regular citizen, given their size and opulence, Cocoa Motors, a Japanese company, decided to create the Walk Car.
The “Walk Car” is a lithium battery-powered device, the size of a laptop, that can get you from A to Z and around the city in no time. It weighs around 7 pounds (3 kilograms) and you can fit it in your bag when you go inside.
Kuniako Saito, a 26-year-old Japanese engineer, is the mastermind behind this invention and along with his team at Cocoa Motors they’ve managed to create an outstanding new gadget.
“I thought, ‘what if we could just carry our transportation in our bags, wouldn’t that mean we’d always have our transportation with us to ride on?’ and my friend asked me to make one, since I was doing my masters in engineering specifically on electric car motor control systems,” says Saito.
The aluminum device can hold up to 264 pounds (120 kilograms), it can reach speeds of up to 6,2 mph (10 km/h) and it can go 7,4 miles (12 kilometers) after 3 hours of charging. The price is set at $800 and we are almost positive that the “Walk Car” will conquer the world, sooner or later. Or at least until they will invent moving sidewalks.
