Meet Walk Car, a transporter that’s small, light and apparently easy to use! The product is battery powered and is about the size of a laptop. And can hold 265 pounds. Walk Car can go up to 6.2 miles per hour for up to 7.4 miles and needs three hours to charge.

Creator Kuniako Saito told Reuters in an interview, “‘What if we could just carry our transportation in our bags, wouldn’t that mean we’d always have our transportation with us to ride on?’ and my friend asked me to make one, since I was doing my masters in engineering specifically on electric car motor control systems.”

The WalkCar could soon be seen on the streets of Tokyo. It will launch later this year on fundraising site Kickstarter and if successful, its developers say it will ship next year, with a price tag of about 800 dollars.
