Not Quite ‘Beam Me Up Scotty’ Science But Still Sick

                                        Good Day World!

How 21st century.

It looks like a skateboard mimicking a laptop computer on steroids, and it can transport you up to seven miles on a single charge.

Pretty cool huh?

Speaking of transporting…here’s a vintage moment:

"Beam me up, Scotty" is a catchphrase that made its way into popular culture from the science fiction television series Star Trek. It comes from the command Captain Kirk gives his chief engineer, Montgomery "Scotty" Scott, when he needs to be transported back to the Starship Enterprise. (Source)

BACK IN THE REAL WORLD

Japanese designers at Cocoa Motors, have created WalkCar, a tiny motorized transporter (Photo on top of page), small enough to fit in a bag, so that you can take it wherever you go.

To operate it, you just lean your body toward your destination and it moves with you, similar to a Segway. (Source) To see it in action, watch this video.

Time for me to walk on down the road…
