The project "cocoa motors." Launched in 2013 by Mr. Kuniaki Sato (completed the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Information Engineering, Shibaura Institute of Technology in March 3) can be carried in a bag from October 2011. We will start pre-order sales of Walk Car, the world's smallest electric car.

WalkCar's latest prototype has a laptop-sized body with a battery, motor and four tires.It weighs about 4 kg and can be carried in a bag, so you can take it out and ride it at any time.By tilting the vehicle upwards, you can operate curves, accelerators, and brakes.Mr. Sato was engaged in research on control systems for electric vehicles when he was a student, and the project is being carried out individually.

cocoa motors. Was launched in 2011 when it was adopted as the first startup program of MOVIDA JAPAN. MODIVA JAPAN provides support to entrepreneurs, such as guidance through training and training camps, and provision of offices.Furthermore, in the future, we will raise funds using the American crowdfunding site "KICKSTARTER" for the purpose of investigating the degree of attention in the United States.

When it comes to the times when vehicles come out of bags, I feel like I'm one step closer to Doraemon.The support system that allows such ideas to be realized without giving up will also attract more and more attention in the future.No matter how good an idea you came up with when you were a student, many people give up because of the high hurdles to commercialize it.Or maybe most people don't even come up with the idea of ​​commercialization.However, a society is being created that makes it easier for people with ideas to take on challenges.
