Getting to that next meeting across town might have just gotten easier than ever.
Thanks to an invention Cocoa Motors is calling the WalkCar, traveling might be as simple as packing your bag on the way out of your house.
According to Time magazine, the WalkCar is battery powered and is no larger than your standard laptop.
It may look flimsy at first, but don't be fooled. This mini electric car can actually support 265 pounds and can travel nearly at a smooth 7.5 mph.
It seems easy to handle and can also help you out when it comes to traveling short distances. Let's see what else it can do.
It's perfect for city life due to its ability to stop on a dime.
The WalkCar can also be great for people who need to lug around heavy loads from office to office. It can certainly handle those inclines with ease.
The WalkCar was invented by Kuniako Saito, who was inspired to make it by a friend. Saito told Reuters in an interview that he was inspired by the question, "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?"
Since he was receiving his masters in engineering at the time, he decided to come up with this invention, which will be on sale in Fall 2015. The price tag is about $800 and will be available through Kickstarter.
