Japanese engineer develops portable transporter

  • A Japanese engineer has developed a portable transporter small enough to be carried in a backpack.

    The 'WalkCar' is small enough to fit in a backpack, and has a top speed of 10 km per hour for distances of up to 12 km after three hours of charging. The user can steer it by just shifting his weight, the Daily Mail reported.

    Kuniako Saito, 26, and his team at Cocoa Motors recently unveiled the lithium battery-powered 'WalkCar' transporter, which is the size of a laptop and resembles a skateboard more than a car. (Source: IANS)
