Acts like an armadillo

The Armadillo-T is an all-electric vehicle that folds up upon itself when parked. It was developed by In-Soo Suh, an associate professor of the Graduate School for Green Transportation at KAIST in South Korea, and his research team. These pictures will give you an idea of the vehicle’s capabilities and dimensions as they relate to a typical car. The video on the last slide demonstrates the full effect, while a YouTube commenter raises an interesting question about the Armadillo-T’s potential real-life use.
