The creator of the WalkCar bills it as the mini Segway. Japanese engineer Kuniako Saito has created a tiny personal transportation system that has the potential to revolutionize laziness all around the world.

Don’t let the size of the WalkCar fool you. It may be tiny but it can still carry 120kg and you can travel at max speed of 10 kmph for at least 12 km. After that you’ll probably need a re-charge, and apparently it’ll take 3 hours for that.

The main engineer, Saito and his team at Cocoa Motors plan to launch the WalkCar this autumn and the expected price is somewhere around 800 bucks.
