This motorcycle can go under a desk, but I really wish it was one
Today, I came across a cool folding motorcycle that looks like a desk, that can go under a desk, but has one big problem: it can't. turn inwards desk.
Okay, let's talk about the bike itself first before I state my reasons why I want it to be a desk too.
Built with Japanese startup Icoma, the so-called "Tatamel motorcycle" is made for "free parking wherever you want", according to the company's CEO.
Admittedly, that's a good idea if you live in a congested city and can't find - or don't want to pay for - a parking space, or are just too lazy to leaving this weird cutie out.
In terms of performance, it's not surprising, but it will do its job. It is powered by a 600W motor and is rated at a top speed of 40km / h and a range of 50km at a single charge.
Its battery, however, can charge other devices, so don't ask for perfection as it's an inaccessible concept anyway.
The bike is still a prototype and there is no word on the release date yet, but I'm GLAD like that.
Because that's what I really want the bike to turn into a desk, and I have inspiring reasons why Icoma should follow my advice.
1. It's almost there, people
I mean, if you turn it on its side and attach a structural element to build it up, it's easy to do!
2. It would be a definition of flexible working
Imagine it's a hot day and you can't stay indoors. You could ride your motorcycle to a park and work properly air, while listening to the birds and getting a tan.
3. It is good for the environment
Not only are you riding an electric vehicle, but you are also not eating the precious wood needed for a normal, individual desk. That's a double win for Mother Earth.
4. You save money
Do I have to say? You get two results in one, and that's a neat budget move.
All in all, is it a perfect motorcycle? No, but it must. And until the time comes motordesk, I dream about it.
You can check out all the deets in the video below. You will certainly agree that my opinion is worth considering. In the meantime, I keep an eye on my emails for a collaboration recommendation from Icoma.
