Image of the Week: Innovation in Transportation

Korea is a crowded place, an urban environment often more geared to pedestrians than motorists (although you would never know that trying to cross an intersection). Engineers at KAIST are searching for the next major revolution in personal transportation, and one example of this is an ultra-compact electric car that seems perfect for the hipster road warrior. I caught the car in action a few days ago, and ran after it to its home on campus.

And it’s home outside of mechanical engineering.
