MIT develop a low cost folding electric scooter.

William J. Mitchell Professor of Architecture and Media Arts and Sciences developed the vehicle, which boasts of being clean, compact, energy efficient not to mention cool, along with several of his MIT students. The team also collaborated with SYM, a major scooter manufacturer in Taiwan, and ITRI, Taiwan’s Industrial Technology Research Institute. The scooter, which has a clean, simple design, was dreamt up in response to a need in Asian and European cities, which are already fond of traditional scooters. The advantage of the new model, however, is that it does not run on the old-style, polluting two-stroke engine and is silent.
