Kobot - a new mobilty concept robot vehicle

Japanese robot company Tmsuk and electronic manufacturer Kowa Co. Ltd. have developed an new electric concept eco-car called "Kobot".  Three different models of the  fold-able robot scooter controlled by a smart phone wowed visitors to the 42th Tokyo Motor Show 2011.

The Kobot is a three-wheel scooter with just one seat and can drive 30 km/h. It can be packed away after use in a space of around one square meter.  The developer Kowa Tmsuk hopes the electrically-powered vehicle will be perfect for navigating crowded city streets, without adding to air pollution. The vehicles may be ready for the market Q4 in 2013.
