Researchers in Japan have developed a new twist on the electric bike that’s small enough to carry in a backpack.
Called Poimo – short for Portable and Inflatable Mobility – the e-bike was developed by a team at the University of Tokyo, who were interested in more efficient ways to handle short and 폴리우레탄 medium distance transportation.
They decided to focus on a design for a collapsible, lightweight e-bike that people could carry with them on public transportation and use for what they call ‘one-mile mobility.’

Poimo, or Portable and Inflatable Mobility, is a new e-bike prototype developed at the University of Tokyo to provide a flexible transportation option for short- and medium-distance trips
This could include traveling to locations that aren’t close to public transportation routes or moving between neighborhoods that don’t have any direct bus or train connections.
