Have you ever thought of what companies are doing for Mamma Earth?
Yike is a urban vehicle that satisifes all the urban problems: easy to fold, light weighted, zero emission, consumes small amounts of electricity and
comfortable and it an reach 20 km/h. Plus, it’s design is nice.
Another sweet vehicle, still to improve, is Honda’s U3-X. What makes the U3-X particularly interesting is it has the regular large wheel of a unicycle, but that wheel is actually made up of several small wheels in a series, which can rotate independently, meaning that the device can go forward, backward, side-to-side and diagonally, all being controlled with a simple lean. Right now the “experimental model” of the U3-X gets a single hour of battery and weighs under 22 pounds, with a seat and foot rests that fold into the device for extra portability. No word of course on when the thing might make it to market, but Honda plans to show it off next month at the Tokyo Motor Show.
Finally! Brammo: an electric bike. Visit their great campaign Shocking Barack with which they plan to offer their bike as one of the big solutions to environmental transportation.
