the ‘collapsible belt-scooter’ by adam torok transforms from a mode of transport into an article of clothing. the diploma project was envisioned by the theory that vehicles which are not entirely portable, will become obsolete. the graduate from the university of west hungary’s institute of applied art, analyzed that the most efficient method of traveling in the shortest amount of time, are those powered by legs.

meeting both the portability and leg-powered transportation needs, the ‘belt-scooter’ folds to become wearable around the user’s waist. it is easy to wear around the place as it is manufactured from plywood and iron – weighing 1.7kg. adam’s ‘collapsible belt-scooter’ was shown at the 2014 budapest design week and the next prototype is in development.
