The Japanese developed a personal transport, located in a backpack

26-year-old Japanese engineer Kuniako Saito, along with his colleagues from the company Cocoa Motors have created a compact transporter the size of a laptop that resembles a normal skateboard. A small bag or backpack can be a garage for him.

WalkCar is made of aluminum and, depending on the model, can weigh 2 or 3 kg. Its maximum speed is up to 10 km / h, the full charge range is calculated for 12 km, the transported load is up to 120 kg. WalkCar begins to move at a time when the “driver” is on it, and stops in the “reverse order”, for which it is necessary to jump.


Control in the process of movement is carried out by transferring the body weight in the desired direction. According to Kuniako Saito, WalkCar is the fruit of his intense research into the control systems of automotive electric motors, which eventually led to the emergence of a new vehicle.

Saito assured everyone that it would be possible to order WalkCar this fall on the Kickstarter website, paying $ 800. The delivery is expected to begin in the spring of 2016.
