Inflatable EV scooter

Yes you read that correctly. This can blow your mind or other parts of the body.

Poimo (POrtable and Inflatable MObility) of Japan made an inflatable electric scooter that can be carried around in a rucksack:

If the UN ever accomplishes anything meaningful, it will be to make Japanese acronyms illegal and not officially recognized. See CHAdeMO as exhibit A.

CHAdeMO is one of the better actually. It means something like "what about a tea?"

That seems to make my point pretty well.

Steering and leaning in pivots around seams in the fabric. That must be a first for powered transportation.

If they had only used the first letters of Portable And Inflatable Mobility then maybe people would be reluctant to sit on it, despite it just being an inflated cushion.
Who wants a PAIM in the ... you know?

I doubt it would ever be road legal, but I want one.
I'm a bit too big for it, it would look ridiculous. But nonetheless.

I don't see a dog in this blowup EV, nor how CHAdeMO has gone to the dogs?

Some people name their personal transport, but maybe in this case one needs to hold back a bit.
"Are you going for a ride?"
"Yeah, I'll blow up Wendy!"
Not good
