Developed to solve the age-old problem of “last mile” transportation for urban dwellers, the No. 5065 scooter can be folded into a compact tube for easy storage.
Designed by Wang Yixing, this scooter can easily be tucked away in your backpack one second, and providing a form of convenient transportation the next. It was designed to be a bridge between different forms of public transportation, a void where options like bicycles are just too large and cumbersome. In its folded position, the tube measures just 50 by 6.5 centimeters, which makes it perfect for dispensing from vending machines throughout the city. The scooter was an honorable mention at the Red Dot Design Awards, and we imagine with enough support and interest, we could see this thing (or something very similar) hitting the retail scene.
