Now I've seen everything! This car is called The Armadillo. It's ugly like one! But the thing that intrigues me with this South Korean engineering is that it actually folds in half. It's very crowded there and they are always looking to develop more energy efficient and environmentally friendly cars, all while saving a little space. It's an electric car that can travel 100 km (62 miles) on a 10-minute charge and has a maximum speed of 60 km per hour (37 miles per hour). When it comes time to park, the rear of the vehicle folds over the front, almost halving its body length to just 1.65 meters (65 inches).
"They can be parked in every corner of the street and buildings, be it apartments, shopping malls or supermarkets," said a professor at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology who led development of the car. If you're a tall guy forget it, you'll never fit! And when it comes to parking, I don't care who you are or where you go. There's always some fool that will park too close for you to get in our out of your car. Or they'll leave a ding on your car door because they parked too close and dinged it when they got out of their car. I like the idea, but do you think it would work here in the U.S.? They still have a long way to go to develop it though. It hasn't passed crash test regulations there so it isn't on the road yet. But if it's a glimpse of things to come, it's pretty cool.
