WalkCar: A Personal Electric Transportation Device That Looks Like A Laptop With Wheels

August 12, 2015

This is the WalkCar, a personal electric transportation device that looks like a laptop on wheels. It can support 265-pounds and travel up to 7.2 miles on a single charge at a breakneck speed of 6.2MPH. At speeds like that my mom would almost certainly make me wear a helmet. Cocoa Motors, the company behind the device, is expected to launch a Kickstarter this October, with WalkCars priced around $800 and shipping spring, 2016. Hopefully, they'll have changed the name to anything other than WalkCar by then.

Keep going for a video of people getting their too-lazy-to-walk on.

Thanks to G Anso, who gets around the old fashioned way: being pulled in a red Radio Flyer wagon.

    What the hell is wrong with walking?...Fuck this world is wack...

  • Alex Fruen

    There's nothing wrong with walking. Not being able to walk is a problem

  • shashi

    Whoa Black Betty

  • Brock

    The music, skinny-jeans, and pink shoes confirmed that I am not the target audience.

    What an insult to the guy in the wheelchair. I can use my legs, but I'll just push you around with my new gadget that helps me be lazy rather than invent one to help you…

  • Luigi Buscemi

    lazy hipsters...

    ill take two..

  • Billy Rocka

    Know how a skateboard can find the tiniest of pebble and or crack making the rider fall head first? That's what this looks like it'll do.

  • JRF

    Exactly. This thing is a first-class ticket to Faceplantsville.

  • AdvancePlays

    This seems useful for making cool entrances

  • Jeremy Sandlin

    I can't wait for this to show up in the next OK Go music video.

  • Andrew Newton

    "It can support 265-pounds" looks like this idea will never get off the ground in the US, literally.

  • Hahahaha...a Hoax.

  • You better learn to use it right, you don't want to be the guy on the wheelchair...

  • Justin

    I would love to see people text and crash on this thing!

  • Renan

    WHY DOES THIS FUCKING NEED TO EXIST?!

  • Alex Fruen

    If you struggle to walk, this could help you move. Is it really that hard to understand?

  • antalicus

    This would never support the weight of people that would actually use this.

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    I think it could be ok for non-obese elderly people but I would put at least a handle on it.

  • Alex Fruen

    If this was on a larger scale with more robust suspension for uneven surfaces I think it could definitely help people with limited movement.
