Tiny Personal Transporter ‘WalkCar’ by Cocoa Motors

Japanese designers at Cocoa Motors, have created WalkCar, a tiny motorized transporter, small enough to fit in a bag, so that you can take it wherever you go. The 6.6-pound four-wheeled transport is designed to carry passengers as heavy as 265 pounds and has a top speed on 10kph and can travel for 12 kilometres when fully charged. To operate it, you just lean your body toward your destination and it moves with you, similar to a Segway. To stop you simply just step off the tiny platform. The WalkCar isn’t quite ready for prime time, though. It’s still just a (completely functional) prototype. This fall, its creators will be turning to Kickstarter to help them finalize its design and make it consumer-ready. If all goes well, the WalkCar could sell for around $800 when available next year.

Retro Styled Vespa Segway

Have you ever thought about combining legendary Italian scooter Vespa and a Segway, a two-wheeled, self-balancing, battery-powered electric vehicle invented by Dean Kamen? Here’s the Vespa, the retro style moped, inspired by Segway. The designers from the Spanish design house Bel & Bel have managed to create Vespa Segway. The product is called Zero Scooter, and is actually made of parts from the classic Vespa. Now it’s available at around $4K US with 5 years warranty.
