Since I was little, I always loved the idea of Dragon Ball capsules, which had objects such as vehicles or houses inside. Being able to carry a car in your pocket or some huge objects are ideas that more than one should be passionate about. And I wrote down the bicycle that we are going to talk about in this article does not come out of a capsule, definitely if it challenges the notions of what is impossible due to its incredible ability to be folded to a very small size, small enough, to even store it. inside a backpack.
Impossible the portable bike
Like many other innovative products we’ve seen this past year, this curious folding bike is part of a Kickstarter project whose goal is to finance the development and production of an electric powered bike, capable of being folded and folded to a size sufficient small enough to be kept in a backpack.
This small but interesting bicycle is built with carbon fiber materials, which ensures that it is very light and at the same time very resistant (the initial prototype can support up to 85 Kg). To transport your passenger, Impossible has a set of 4 batteries that power a small motor in one of its wheels which can develop a speed of up to 12 miles per hour for about 45 minutes, enough time to make an important journey.
The creators of this invention assure that this test version still has many pending improvements, however they already specify that the 4 rechargeable battery pack has an estimated charging time of 1 hour and a half; They are also offering the possibility of purchasing an additional set of batteries separately to replace them in case you need more time walking and not have to wait for the batteries to recharge.
What do you think of this curious design? I would definitely like to see how it is refined, and maybe in the not too distant future have some kind of portable bike in my backpack.
