You might’ve come across foldable bikes before, but this new prototype e-scooter goes one step further.

The eco-friendly scooter, called Poimo, was developed by the University of Tokyo and, unlike other scooters, it can be stored in a bag and inflated in just over a minute by using an electric pump.

Researchers behind the design claim that the inflatable body would protect pedestrians as well as the rider in the event of an accident.
