Transformers are the Transportation of the Future
Today in Kyoto, Japan - Toyota unveiled its latest offering for the Hybrid market.
The new single person vehicle is designed to serve as both a pedestrian
"walker" and a four wheeled "car" transforming at the push of a button.
The i-ride, as it is tentatively being called pending clearances from Apple, will be powered by an industrial grade mix of chicken excrement and everyday cooking oil. "It is going to change the way we look at
transportation and the human body" gushed one Toyota engineer. Toyota
executives announced that production would begin in Japan in late
November. In related news, the state of California has already passed
a bill (b1657) allowing the i-ride access to HOV car pool lanes (when in
car form only).
