There’s one word that those in the tech-transit bubble are familiarizing themselves with — Poimo. The term, which stands for “portable and inflatable mobility,” refers to a new form of affordable transportation that aims to change how students, professionals, and others living in congested urban areas get around town.
Currently in the prototype phase, the portable, inflatable e-bike blows up in minutes and fits inside a backpack, meaning that buying one immediately rids you of two of life’s most mundane time wasters — sitting in traffic and searching for a parking spot. You won’t even need to find a bike rack since it folds neatly in your backpack once deflated. It’s quite possible that never before has e-biking been both so nerdy and so epic at the same time.
