MIT develop a low cost folding electric scooter.
William J. Mitchell Professor of Architecture and Media Arts and Sciences developed the folding electric scooter / vehicle. One which boasts of being clean, compact, energy efficient. I mean not to mention cool, along with several of his MIT students. The team also collaborated with SYM. For that’s a major scooter manufacturer in Taiwan. Also and ITRI, Taiwan’s Industrial Technology Research Institute. The scooter, which has a clean, simple design. For it was dreamt up in response to a need in Asian and European cities. All which are already fond of traditional scooters. The advantage of the new model, however, is that it does not run on the old-style. Thereby polluting two-stroke engine and is silent.
Taking their lead from origami and existing folding bicycles, the Smart Cities team addressed the problem by designing a clean, green, silent scooter that can be folded in half and towed like a rolling suitcase—easy to take on trains, or indoors—or stacked in a rack for storage and battery charging.
