Old news, there is also a Toyota version and a couple more along the
The main problem is that it is strictly a commuter toy, for those living
in small area flat cities. Not even good for gimpys like me [they would
not go into buildings, even though the Toyota one supposedly has a
vertical people height one that lays flatter for fast street transit
one. <sec to google for the site>
The iREAL is a bit better, http://www.gizmag.com/go/8157/ [also has
links to the other 2 'I' concepts] though right now, going by the video
release, it is designed for tiny little asian girly asses and not for
fat arsed gaijin like me. The iREAL I can see as a gimpmobile/power
chair, but again, any electric pod vehicle is for essentially small
square mileage flat urban areas.
I rather like this peugeot haut bubble model
if we are going for wisting after spiffy toys.
