Movpak fits an EV into a backpack

• http://www.gizmag.com, By Adam Williams

Movpak is the work of a Brazilian startup of the same name, and whether there's a direct influence or not, appears to be an evolution of the same general idea that gave rise to the Olaf, the Micro Luggage, and the Fly.

However, Movpak boasts a significant benefit over the previous efforts in that this skateboard-like device has electric drive and can speed along at up to 15 mph (24 km/h) for up to 9 miles (14 km) before needing a recharge – which itself takes a couple of hours. Movpak measures 60 x 30 cm (24 x 12 in), weighs 7.7 kg (17 lb), and can also be pulled along like a luggage trolley. When in operation, the Movpak is steered like a skateboard (with the backpack sitting to the rear) and acceleration is controlled with a wireless controller that the company is still refining.The latest such transportation device to come to our attention is the Movpak: an electric skateboard-like EV that fits into a backpack, and still leaves some room for carrying stuff.
