Only 11 pounds of inflatable electric bicycle debut: can be tucked into a backpack
Recently, Poimo has taken portable bicycles to a new height through research and development. This kind of cute electric car was displayed at this year ’s ACM CHI conference. It is an inflatable electric bicycle that can be installed when you are not riding In a small backpack.
At present, this electric bicycle is still in the prototype stage, so the actual setting may be more troublesome than the video shows.
The wheels and handlebars are detachable and this prototype version also seems to require an external air compressor to pump it up to withstand the weight of the rider. Once inflated and assembled, you can take it let's go.
There are still many questions about this prototype, such as how long will it last? According to IEEE Spectrum data, the weight of the whole thing is only 5.5 kilograms and about 12 pounds, so the battery life may be very small.
Can those two-wheel units fit in the backpack? If it has a built-in air compressor, how long does it take to set up and inflate?
I believe that the above problems will eventually be solved, this inflatable portable electric bicycle looks exciting.
