The ‘walkcar’ is powered by lithium-ion batteries and can travel 12 km and go up to 10 km/h.

A company based in Tokyo – Cocoa motors thinks that walking is such a hard work, so they’ve come up with the ‘walkcar’ – a slim aluminum tablet with four wheels that is controlled by electric motors that can traverse small curbs, light slopes, and simple cityscapes.

“The time has come to carry your car. Introducing the world’s smallest car from Tokyo. GO FASTER. GO FURTHER. GO WALKCAR.”

The selling point is its weight – 6.6 pounds and its size which is equal to an A4 thin folder.

The invention works by simply standing on it to go and can be steering by plainly shifting weight from side to side while riding.

The ‘walkcar’ is powered by lithium-ion batteries and can travel 12 km and go up to 10 km/h.

Charging it takes only three hours, and is a smaller improvement of the popular segway because of its portable size.

Since it does fit any bag, this would be great for the elderly commuting between subways, buses, and trams.

Currently, the “WalkCar” is ready to pre-order at 1.280 USD
