MIT Media Lab's RoboScooter prototype is entirely electric, with at least one lithium-ion battery pack that can be swapped out for another, fully charged on. It can also folded up for easy transport. The RoboScooter's biggest innovation however â€" one with the real potential to change the state of urban transportationâ€"is on the assembly line. “A traditional internal combustion vehicle might have 1200 to 1500 parts,” says William Mitchell, director of the Smart Cities research group and a professor of Architecture & Media Arts and Sciences. “RoboScooter has 150.” RoboScooter should be available in Asian markets in about a year.
