CONCEPT: Toyota i-REAL
Posted Image


The i-REAL is a personal mobility vehicle made closely in human scale as a step toward commercialization in the near future.
  • Represents the next stage of Toyota's personal mobility vehicle development, following the PM, i-unit and i-swing.
  • Uses three wheels (two at the front and one at the back), in low-speed mode, shortening its wheelbase to allow it to maneuver naturally among pedestrians at similar eyesight height without taking up a large amount of space; in high-speed mode the wheelbase lengthens to provide a lower center of gravity and better driving performance.
  • Ensures safe handling-both to the driver and those around the vehicle-by employing perimeter monitoring sensors to detect when a collision with a person or object is imminent and alerts the driver by emitting a noise and vibrating; at the same time, alerts people around it of its movements through the pleasant use of light and sound.

looks like a $500k wheelchair... kinda interesting, but somehow it just strikes me as something for those who want a Segway, but are too lazy to stand up.

If they really want to sell these it needs a basket somewhere for people to put their shopping, like those scooters overweight, lazy or mature-aged people use to mow people down in shopping malls.

It even looks like the same materials as Apple uses...

Wow, not only do the asian car companies rip off american car design, they also apparently rip of american computer design.
