How about just walking, you'll have more dignity in the end......at least gas mileage isn't asn issue. :bonkers:

Toyota i-swing concept

"This latest one-person car concept by Toyota confirms their commitment to this concept, a means for personal expression as much as movement. Also designed in Tokyo, the forms are more fluent than before, especially at the rear. Hard plastics make way for softer fabrics on the exterior, as the clothing theme becomes increasingly transparent. This 'personal mobility vehicle' is well suited to built-up areas and pedestrian zones, able to rear up so that the user's face is on the same level as a pedestrian's. It also has a 'pedal mode', operated as if a pair of skis. From any other company, the i-swing might be more easily dismissed as a fantasy, but coming from Toyota, it is more unnerving; rivals may want to take note."

Hahahaha

-I'd hate to be on that, period. Not only is it ugly, but it looks to be extremly uncomfortable and just all around "dinky"

AND NO PLACE TO PUT #&@*ING HYDRAULICS!!!!!!!

Dude, I think it DOES have hydraulics!!!

"able to rear up so that the user's face is on the same level as a pedestrian's."

I think?? :D :hmm: Why you could bounce up and down on the street and fully impress the ladies.... :histeric:

Looks like it even has the optional sunroof that slides back!!! :thumbsup:

I think that it would be funny to see someone tip over when riding in one of these...
LOL, what will happen eventually when 2 of these things have a head-on collision at "high speed????" Why that would be $29.95 in damages, COMBINED!!!!! ;)

I wonder if seatbelts are optional, or even needed.. :nono:

Nope. It's been done! The 1956 Ford Sunliner Convertible was also available with a clear (thick) plastic panel in the convertible top, that un-zipped from the inside and could be removed, making a "Sun Roof" type of opening IN the convertible top. I recall them ! It was phased out for 1957, when they introduced the hardtop retractable on the Fairlane 500.

It's not really a hoverround, more like a hoverround/baby stroller mix breed. And it should be put down, if need be by my 75. Usually I'll say I'd use my friend's beater 77 LTD to ram car concepts I don't like, but this wouldn't leave a scratch on the 75, and hell it's not even a car concept.
