How often have you found yourself needing to get home from a late night party but lacking the necessary funds to hail a cab or hop on the subway? Designer Ádám Török might have come up with a solution too this all too common problem with a concept scooter that transforms into a wearable belt, merging questionable fashion sense with one of the cheapest forms of transportation.
The design uses a curved body-hugging piece of wood for the base of the scooter, ensuring it's arch-like form factor is strong enough to support a rider's weight while being relatively comfortable to wear. It also employs a rather brilliant segmented system for the scooter's vertical handlebars that becomes rigid when an inner strap is tightened, but flexible enough to actually wear when it's loosened.
Will it keep a loose-fitting pair of pants up? Probably not. Does it ensure you've always got an alternative to walking available? Absolutely, with a few fashionable compromises. But it's easy to ignore those fashion critics pointing and laughing as you zoom right on past them. [Behance - Ádám Török via designboom]
