BMW i Pedelec Electric Bike: Stash It in Your Prius and You’re Ready to Go

I’ve never been a fan of electric bikes, but I can see a use for them, especially for people who need the extra help to get a move on. Most electric bikes are also a bit bulky, making them less than convenient for everyday use. That said, BMW just released a new concept for a foldable electric bike, that you’ll be able to stash almost anywhere.

Lit Motors C-1: Electric Scooter with a Roof?

I’ll admit that if you live in Asia, cars aren’t very convenient, though the trend for super-minis is starting to catch on in Europe and slowly in North America.

OSSA Monocasco Electric Bike Concept: 1970s Style, 21st Century Tech

This concept electric bike looks like an updated version of the original OSSA Monocasco bike that Santiago Herrero rode in the 1970s. However, this bike is an electric version, so you can use it pretty much anywhere without worrying about fuel efficiency and harming the environment. While it probably won’t burn the kind of rubber that the original did, it is an appealing compact and energy-efficient package.

Rinspeed Dock + Go Makes Mini-Cars More Useful

For a moment, I thought that this dock for your super mini-car would make it into a mini-pickup, but that’s not the case. Once attached, the resulting car looks kind of cool, albeit strange and wrong in so many ways.

Drawing Electronic Circuits with Pen and Ink

Have you ever thought about creating electrical circuits with a pen? Apparently some engineers have, and came up with this prototype. These electric circuits were drawn using a silver-inked rollerball pen. The circuits can be drawn directly on paper, wood, and other surfaces. Now that’s an amazing pen.

Geely McCar: Electric Car Has Electric Scooter in the Trunk

Geely’s new McCar concept vehicle stuffs an electric scooter in the back. While this might sound like science-fiction, it’s actually going to be made. The main question will be if it’s going to be available in the US. Still, it’s an interesting take on the whole mobility scheme.
