Japan – A new more personal and mobile device whose user can transport inside a bag, was created by a 26-year-old Japanese engineer who speaks of the first “car” that can be put inside a bag.
As it is mentioned in an article posted by the Reuters, the 26-year-old Kuniako Saito and his team at Cocoa Motors recently discovered the electrically moving Walk Car (moves with lithium batteries). It’s about a transportation device at the size of a laptop, so the title could get a bit confusing since judging by the size it looks more like a skateboard.
The Walk Car is made of aluminium and weighs approximately 2-3 kilos depending on the version designed for indoors or outdoors.
Saito is expecting to see many different uses for his transporter which, as he supports has enough power to push two wheelchairs. In fact the vehicle can lift weight up to 120 kilos, while the maximum speed it can reach is 10km per hour, with an autonomy of 12 kilometres with only 3 hours of charging which is also the full charging time. Once the rider stands on it the Walk Car starts automatically and when simply stepping off, it stops. To change direction, the user must shift his weight to that direction he wants.
The Walk Car will be available on Kickstarter at the price tag of approximately $800 USD. We hope to see everyone with one of their own. The shipping is expected to begin the spring of 2016.
