I-road: The urban 3 Wheeled car by Toyota

It deals with Toyota’s decade-long project I-Road. a 3-wheeled electric car which revolves around its onboard computer to allow it to self-balance or tilt accordingly to gravity and the impulse on the wheel needed to make a turn. Watch the video below or here.

In an economy that shows more and more alternatives to capitalistics market logics, Toyota seems to aiming at the car sharing industry within strickly urban areas. I can’t help myself thinking that, with services that rely mainly on the car industry in terms of technologies such as taxis, car pulling, and others, along with a general environment awareness, the I-Road by Toyota really seems to be one great answer to today’s problematics.
