Smart Cities Design the Folding Scooter

The Smart Cities Group has created another design in the hopes of making the world a greener place.

The folding Scooter by this MIT group is a practical electronic scooter that is envisioned to be stored and conveniently placed in large and congested cities for an additional, environmentally friendly, transportation alternative. Similar to the Stackable Rental Cars, these are moving towards providing other means of transportation and keeping the environment’s health in mind.

This little vehicle looks really fun to drive and fold. I wonder where it will be stored. Will there be special lockers available for this? Is it light enough to carry up to your apartment or office? Will this scooter be convenient or actually save space on something that does not take too much space to begin with? Either way, this is definitely a cool design.
