Тенденции: Toyota i-unit creates new term: personal mobility_

Toyota i-unitTo meet individuals’ “wishes to enjoy freedom of movement, harmony with society, and harmony with the Earth’s natural environment,” Toyota has created the i-unit personal mobility vehicle.  Basically Transformers for people with lots of money, the i-unit can run in a low-speed upright or high-speed reclining position.  It is also shaped like a leaf, which, according to the same designers that created the “personal mobility” term, “seeks to express the power of the unknown, the logic of living things and the simple beauty of waste-free functionality.” Which is exactly what we think every time we see a leaf. All it needs is some gatling guns and it’d be ready for the next Aliens
