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.
