Photos: Personal transporters from Toyota and Suzuki
Toyota shows off its i-Real and Suzuki shows the Pixy and Mio at the 2007 Tokyo auto show.
Single-person wheeled vehicles look like the stuff of science fiction, but Toyota and Suzuki showed off a few concepts at the 2007 Tokyo auto show. They tend to have a futuristic look and electric drive, but we're not entirely sure what problem they are supposed to solve. Just as the Segway become more novelty than necessity, we can't imagine future thoroughfares jam-packed with people commuting in the vehicles. Still, they look like they would be fun to drive.
