This may not look like a student’s regular scooter concept, but more like an ingenious mean of short distance commuting inside airports. It is called Nexus and designer Francisco Lupin thought at everything to make it happen: two electric engines fed by four 12V batteries will supposedly be capable to power what we like to call the suitcase scooter to a top speed of 15 km/h (9.3 mph) while carrying a maximum load of 110 kg (242.5 pounds). It will go like this for two hours before emptying the batteries.

The Nexus can also be used as a regular suitcase when the batteries are empty and as long as it will fit in the overhead compartment, I’m buying one as soon as they start making it…if it ever happens, of course.

It’s like the segway then only it can carry luggage with it. Well, it can be great for the airport specially for the tired commuters but it can also be used at the mall or any place wherein people have to walk a lot. It can be used in tourist attractions as well. To make the experience easier for the tourists, the use of such bikes or scooters can give that great experience. I mean it can save so much time when getting from one place to another. It can also be used by security companies for their units when deployed as it can make rounding the area a lot easier.

That’s cool its is very convenient for the air travelers to have this in the port. Every now and then they come up with a great invention I’m not going to be surprise if I see everything in a push button mode.

Another great innovation in transportation, but this has also some bad side, people are becoming more reliable in technology that’s why most people got sick due to lack of exercise with that calories became fats.
