Japan has developed a new form of transport that enables users to walk on roads without harassment. Walkcar is a technological advancement that has been created to ensure people don't suffer exhaustion while walking long distances.

Walkcar: Origins, Features, Specs

Japan's Cocoa Motors has designed a Walkcar in such a way that a commuter can carry it in a bag and use it whenever he finds it difficult to take a walk to distances. With the new tech-savvy device, users get the tiniest personal vehicle if they plan to roam about the streets without having their foot in use. Cocoa Motors CEO Kuniaki Sato had a conversation with BBC reporter Chris Foxx where he said that the equipment was only for the convenience of commuters.

Sato said that he observed that the commuters preferred walking or using public transport more than driving private cars. This is what drove him to think of a car in a bag for passengers. Walkcar has been tagged as the world's smallest car with a weight of 2.8 kilograms and dimension 13 inches. The users can put it inside a laptop bag without having to worry much about its weight. The pedestrians can easily carry the car-in-a-bag to use it in case they are tired of walking on foot.

The Japan's portable car is made from aluminium and it has both indoor and outdoor versions. The device comes with a fast charging facility where users can charge it for an hour and enjoy a ride. If it is charged for three hours, the car-in-a-bag can cover up to 10 to 12 kilometers at a speed of 6.2 to 7.4 miles per hour. The micro mini-transport is designed to read a commuter's body so that it takes a right direction.

Japan is a country that allows experiments and enables people to use tech-savvy products and cherish the development. On the other hand, according to Nature World News, there are several nations that do not allow devices like Walkcar to operate at all on public places.
