Neat-looking concept from MIT: A well-designed folding scooter for commuters and the rental market. There’s stuff like this out there already, but not as well-designed. Most electric bikes have a restrictively-heavy-and-large battery, not sure how they avoided that. (Thanks, Brooke.)
One thought on “MIT’s rent-a-scooter concept”
I don’t think they forgot that. It’s’ just a concept design rather than a real working prototype. Something that small could be made but it would require Li-ion batteries and just a single motorwheel. I like the idea of a single rear wheel mounted shock like the old german bikes. I bet it serves the purpose of cushion with out the need for a complicated suspension system meant to improve handling.
