Unfold the Swiss Army Knife of Electric Scooters in Just One Second

Illustration for article titled Unfold the Swiss Army Knife of Electric Scooters in Just One Second

Not that this Volitude scooter has a corkscrew or knife tools—though you could certainly DIY with a few carefully-placed Victorinoxes. Instead, the Swiss-made scooter unfolds in just a second, ready for 18 miles of carefree scooting.

It takes four hours to charge it fully for those 18 miles of whizzing, but there's also a slower "walk" pace that can be activated with a press of a button on the handlebar. It has hydraulic disc brakes and inbuilt front and rear lighting. When folded up, it measures 60cm x 85cm, so shouldn't cause too much trauma to fellow commuters when trying to squeeze on during rush-hour.

Kat, squeeze onto a bus/train/elevator, or are you picking up passengers with it? :)

But seriously, if this thing charged with a simple 110vac* outlet, and could easily be pulled through your building and fit under your desk, this could be brilliant for city commuters.

Charging station? Your cube.

*or 220vac, depending on what comes out of your wall. Your mileage may vary.
