Jetsons-inspired briefcase transforms into a scooter

• http://www.dvice.com, Colin Druce-McFadden
While the flying car hasn't quite gotten FAA approval yet, another of George Jetson's vehicle's super powers might have met reality. The Commute-Case is a real-life electric commuter vehicle that folds up into a briefcase that you can either convert to a trolley bag or pick up with one hand. It's also a fully-functional briefcase, with enough room for your laptop and other essentials.
Weighing in at 27 lbs, the Commute-Case is a seriously compact electric scooter that boasts a 25 mile range and a weight capacity of 275 pounds. With its modest 12.5 MPH top speed, this diminutive scooter won't exactly be able to keep up on the freeway, but it will save you time on city streets. It's weatherproof, and comes with a manual handbrake like the one on your bike. It's even got a cup holder and a dock for your smartphone. On the down side, there's no real seat included in the design, so you'll have to be extra careful while navigating pot-holes.
