Folding Electric RoboScooter Prototype
The "RoboScooter" isn't really robotic at all, but ignoring the nomenclature it's still got verve. Designed at MIT's Media Lab in partnership with SYM/Sanyang Motors, the prototype electric scooter is made from just 150 discrete parts, making maintenance and upkeep simple. It's supposed to be charged by hanging it on a special rack, but if it ever made it to production I'd gladly trade the charging rack for a retractable power cord.
Something like this would be so wonderful for New York—large enough to make inter-borough travel convenient, but still small enough to be stashed in a closet as opposed to the street.
